Abstract

The Lisbon Treaty tries to improve in efficiency and accountability in European Union (EU) trade policy-making. This paper recognizes the validity of the EU Member States' misgivings about giving too prominent a role to the European Commission. Have we now reached after the Lisbon Treaty reforms an adequate institutional balance in EC trade policy?

Keywords: Lisbon Treaty, trust, collective action, democratic deficit
