Chapter Summary

Issues relating to European integration have never really given rise to heated debates between the main political parties in Luxembourg. This chapter sets out the positions which the Luxembourg government took during the course of the negotiations either individually or as a member of the Benelux. The government issued two memoranda of its own, the first in November 1999 and the second in September 2000, and also contributed to two Benelux memoranda dated December 1999 and September 2000. The chapter first addresses the Amsterdam left-overs before turning to some other topics which were of particular interest to Luxembourg in the course of these negotiations. As host country of the judicial institutions of the European Union, Luxembourg starts any discussion on the architecture of the judicial system with a credibility handicap as it is often perceived as defending the interests of the seat aspect.
