Consolidated EU Reform Treaty

Thanks to the IEE institute (Institut d’Études Européennes) of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) we now have consolidated (up-to-date) versions of the draft Reform Treaties of the European Union. They facilitate our reading of the new texts since we do not have to compare every modification by the legal experts with the existing treaties.

There is no date in the texts, but they seem to incorporate all the changes the Foreign Ministers and the Heads of State or Government discuss this week.

Both the amending EU treaty and the treaty on the functioning of the EU (old EC treaty) are available in French.

The amending EU treaty can already be found in English.

The new treaties are never going to be easy to read or comprehend, but the consolidated versions make the task somewhat easier, especially since the amendments have been marked in red type.

The consolidated versions are, of course, unofficial, but still very handy for those who are interested to see for themselves.
