The European Constitution

The European Constitution

An Evaluation from an Environmental Perspective

The news that "Europe is giving itself a constitution" made headlines in June 2003 when the Convention on the Future of Europe adopted the "Draft Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe", that is to be agreed and concluded by an Intergovernmental Conference (IGC). Ecologic published a Brief that gives an introduction to the future Constitution. It focuses on environmental perspectives of the new constitution in order to make an "environmental" contribution to the constitutional debate prior to the Inter-Governmental Conference.

This Ecologic Brief [pdf, 72 KB, English] is a part of the project EcoFuturum "Europe's Democratic Challenge: Actively Shaping European Environmental Policy". It is part of a series of contributions to the European consitutional debates, and Ecologic thus continues its tradition of work on "Greening the Treaties".
