Chapter Summary

In contrast to the other intergovernmental conferences that had taken place since the emergence of a new institutional dynamism in 1984, the Nice intergovernmental conference (IGC) in 2000 was negotiated by a Labour Government from beginning to end. This chapter briefly discusses the relevance of the theoretical framework of Andrew Moravcsik for analysing the British approach to the IGC 2000. It then presents and discusses the official British positions and proposals prior to the IGC. The chapter discusses the issues of continuity and change from the approach to earlier conferences and changes in British positions during the conference. Finally, it presents what could be seen as the balance sheet for Britain after the 2000 IGC. The chapter does not attempt to delineate in detail the British role in the 2000 IGC, but rather tries to analyse the broader questions relating to Britain's role at the IGC.
