Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

This chapter provides a comprehensive assessment of the evolution of EU member states' power, the EU's capability to act (efficiency), and the proportionality of the voting system in the Council of Ministers from the treaties of Rome in 1958 till the Treaty of Lisbon in 2009 and beyond. Moreover, it considers the implications of novel, more recently introduced enforcement mechanisms under the revised Stability and Growth Pact such as reverse qualified majority voting.
