Abstract

Following CEPS' coverage of the 'institutional deadlock' and the 'new deal' before and after the June European Council, this new Policy Brief by CEPS researchers Sergio Carrera and Florian Geyer examines the compromise reached from the perspective of EU Justice and Home Affairs policies. With the formal scrapping of the 'pillar structure', this policy field will be among those most fundamentally changed by the new framework. By presenting these changes and highlighting the great number of exceptions and derogations, the authors assess the potentially serious implications of the Reform Treaty for the common EU Area of Freedom, Security and Justice and offer some suggestions to help avoid the inherent hazards.

Keywords: Justice, Home Affairs, Constitutional Treaty
