Traité de Lisbonne – A Lisbon Treaty commentary

François-Xavier Priollaud and David Siritzky have produced a valuable commentary on the Treaty of Lisbon ’Le traité de Lisbonne – Commentaire, article par article, des nouveaux traités européens (TUE et TFUE)’.

The contents of the amended Treaty on European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union are presented as in the first Council consolidation published 16 April 2008, but with the amendments highlighted for ease of use.

Fairly detailed comments explain each Article of the Treaty on European Union, whereas the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union is dealt with in thematic summaries.

Regardless of the ultimate fate of the Lisbon Treaty, the book is going to be of lasting interest to people interested in the EU treaty reform process.
