Summary
This systematic assessment of the -often opaque- European Council looks at its nature and function, as well as its impact on EU supranational and intergovernmental goals. Taking account of both historical and contemporary developments up to and beyond the Lisbon Treaty, it encourages in-depth understanding in light of key theoretical debates.--
