Note: The EU Council of Ministers agreed a provisional Treaty at the IGC Summit in Nice between 7/10 December 2000. The Treaty is subject to ratification, so please check for updates.

We can advise the intent that some decision-making power is to be surrendered from national level to EU level, and that some of the proposals open up sinister possibilities given the EU's past ability to be creative in packaging measures (e.g. Working Time) in categories with no veto.

Our state-of-the-art Q + A sheet analyses very recent proposals and should be up-to-date on key issues; here is a round-up of the main links for proposals and analysis. (Adobe Acrobat needed to read some documents).
