Chapter Summary

This Chapter starts by assessing the recent origins, scope and implications of the European Union (EU) Framework on Integration. It addresses the ways in which the tools, networks and structures composing it have been constructed until the consolidation of this sui generis policy transnational infrastructure. The Chapter examines the conceptual premises and practical methodologies through which attempts of benchmarking integration of third country nationals (TCNs) at EU level are being conducted, and assesses the current deficits from which this technique currently suffers. The Treaty of Lisbon signed on 13 December 2007 would emerge from the combination of the amendments included in the Mandate for the work of the Intergovernmental Conference (IGC). The role played by evaluation (benchmarking and indexing) sheds some light as regards the connotations of the EU Framework on Integration as a version of Open Method of Coordination (OMC).

Keywords: European Union (EU) Framework; Intergovernmental Conference (IGC); Open Method of Coordination (OMC); Treaty of Lisbon
