Chapter Summary

During the 2000 Intergovernmental Conference (IGC), but long before the Nice summit, some of the candidate countries voiced their primary concerns. Contributing to the analysis of the Nice Treaty, this chapter examines the candidate countries from the Luxembourg group, with Poland as an example in more focus. Firstly, the objectives of and issues on the agenda of the 2000 IGC are recalled. Secondly the positions of the candidate countries are presented and summarised. Their positions are then compared with the outcomes of the Nice Treaty bargain and finally, in order to complete the analysis of this book, the utility and applicability of liberal intergovernmentalism (LI) is briefly addressed. In brief, the chapter overviews the positions taken by the candidate countries on the European Union (EU) institutional reform in the 2000 IGC negotiations.
