The changing role of the rotating EU presidency
Round table with Amb. Rory Montgomery, Perm. Rep. of Ireland to the EU and Willem Van de Voorde, Deputy Head of Cabinet of the Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs.
The Treaty of Lisbon brought changes in terms of the structure of the presidency arrangement of the Council of the European Union and of the European Council. The roundtable focussed on the role of the rotating presidency in the wider EU architecture, as well as how the Lisbon Treaty and other evolutions have changed its functioning.
