Chapter Summary

This chapter presents and analyses the Council of Europes constitutional assistance to its new Eastern European member states. This assessment helps the Council to tackle the remaining major challenges resulting from its rapid enlargement process. The chapter first explains the Councils strategy for granting membership to the Eastern European states. It then introduces and briefly evaluates the new mechanisms and bodies which were set up in the 1990s to prepare the organisation for its new tasks. Next, it presents country-specific examples which illustrate both achievements and challenges of the Councils work in the period of national constitutional restructuring. A thorough study of these achievements and challenges will lead to findings on whether the Councils work has had meaningful impact on country-specific constitutional developments. Based on this analysis, the chapter finally outlines a series of reform proposals for the Council of Europe.

Keywords: Council of Europe; country-specific constitutional developments; Eastern European member states
