    After a decade of negotiations, referenda and trials in front of several consitutional courts, today on 1 December 2009 the Lisbon Treaty enters into force. From now on, the European does not only have a continuous coucil presidency, a ‘foreign minister’ and a much stronger parliament.The citizens also have new possibilities to influence political developments as the “European Citizens’ Initiative’ from now on is part of the treaties.

    In order to prepare the legislation which will make the ECI operational, the European Commission has now published a Green Paper. This action coincides with the launching of a public consultation process, which aims at seeking views of all interested individual citizens and organizations on how to design the implementation laws for the European Citizens’ Initiative.
