Constitutional Treaty

 

On 29 October 2004 the Heads of State and Government and the Foreign Ministers of the EU signed the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe in Rome. To enter into force, the Constitutional Treaty has to be ratified in all Member States. Following the rejection of the Treaty by voters in a referendum in France and the Netherlands, it is unclear at present whether and when the ratification process can be successfully concluded.
