Summary
The fonds illustrates the negotiations for the Treaty of Rome. It was collected and preserved by the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers in charge of the Secretariat of the Intergovernmental Committee which prepared the treaties of Rome. After the meeting of foreign ministers in Messina for relaunching the construction of Europe and creating a common market, the Six reached an agreement whereby an intergovernmental committee was established, led by Paul-Henri Spaak, to study and report on the various previous proposals. The report was centered on the core issue of the project presented in Messina, on the Dutch proposal for a Common Market and on Jean Monnet's idea for a community of nuclear energy. The Spaak report was approved by the foreign ministers of the Six in Venice on the 29 of May, 1956. The Spaak Committee then evolved into a Conference to draft the treaty. The Conference worked in Brussels (Val Duchesse) until the end of 1956. In February 1957 a series of meetings of experts and foreign ministers took place in Paris, culminating in an agreement of the Six in Rome, establishing a European Economic Community (EEC), and a European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom). The fonds comprises the minutes of the Messina Conference and subsequent meetings of foreign ministers in Brussels, Paris and Venice as well as the minutes and working papers produced by the Intergovernmental Committee and its subcommittees during the preparation the Spaak Report. The fonds is complemented with a history of the articles of the Treaty of the EEC and Euratom
Biographical or historical data
The two treaties that the representatives of the six Member States of the ECSC signed in Rome on the 25 March 1957 establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Community for Atomic Energy (Euratom) were the result of a revival in interest for European integration that occurred between June 1955 and March 1957. The Messina Conference (1-2 June 1955) which brought together the foreign ministers of the Six studied the different projects proposed by France, the Benelux and Germany concerning the Common Market and Euratom. At the end of May 1956, at the meeting of Ministers in Venice, the Six adopted the "Spaak Report". An Intergovernmental Conference was announced to draft treaties for the Common Market and Euratom and on the 26 June, the Intergovernmental Conference was opened in Val Duchesse near Brussels. Deliberations were to continue until March 1957 however in the autumn of 1956 the negotiations became deadlocked. Adenauer's visit to Paris on the 6 of November during the crisis of Suez, unblocked the situation. France at this stage wanted a compromise solution. It was therefore decided to set a common external tariff to the arithmetic average of those in the six countries, setting objectives for a common agricultural policy, and Germany agreed to participate equally with France to a fund for helping overseas territories. A compromise was also established for Euratom and France allowed exceptions to the monopoly of the Euratom for supplies of fissile material. On the 25 March 1958, both the treaties on the EEC and Euratom were signed in Rome.
