Chapter Summary

By illustrating and portraying the behaviour of Poland in the debates on the Constitutional Treaty (CT), this chapter outlines the problems the country has had in the process of its writing, accepting, rejecting and in the negotiating process of its final shape in the form of an amended treaty. It discusses the debates within the European Convention and during the 2003-04 Intergovernmental Conference (IGC). It also discusses the period after the CT was rejected and, especially, the time of the CT revival during the 2007 German Presidency. The chapter discusses what happened after the June 2007 Brussels Summit, and the time leading to the preparations of the 2007 IGC. It illustrates the will of Poland to shape Europe during the short process of the rise and fall of the CT.
