As departure point for this work Katharina Schmid
makes reference to the overriding importance of
European Union legislation and the EU political
system to all businesses operating in Europe. This
book, after a preliminary analysis of the “Treaty
establishing a Constitution for Europe”, aims to
answer the questions, in how far business interests
did take part in the establishment of the “EU
Constitution” and what effects the treaty would have
on the system of business interest representation in
Europe. In the appraisal the author distinguishes
two primary factors determining the ability of
business interests to exert influence. Firstly, the
new balance of power between member states and the
EU institutions and among the EU bodies themselves
is being analysed. Following this, the system of
interest representation on EU-level is looked into
and possible effects of the treaty are extracted.
The conclusions of this work are directed at
business interest representation organisations in
the EU. Yet anybody who takes interest in European
integration or in how business interests enter the
EU decision making process shall find answers.
