Chapter Summary

The EU representation and cooperation at the UN is confronted with continuous change due to exogenous factors, which alter the basis for the CFSP in general. Two main factors are EU enlargement and modifications of the legal foundations of the EU, the Treaties. The accession of new MS inevitably changes the balance of power and influence within the EU group in New York. This chapter elucidates how the cooperation with the new EU MS is prepared and implemented in New York already long before the actual accession takes place. By changing the legal foundation of the CFSP through the revision of EU Treaties, as with the Amsterdam and Nice amendments, also the processes at UN headquarters are affected. A further, even more fundamental, alteration is still under consideration: the EU Reform Treaty. This agreement would have a significant impact on the character of the EU representation in New York.
