The Lisbon Treaty

Implications for ACP-EU trade and trade negotiations

The Lisbon Treaty which came into force on 1 December 2009 alters institutional arrangements and the distribution of responsibilities within the European Union. Despite being an internal EU change it is certain to produce external effects. Although neither the scale nor precise nature of these effects can yet be predicted clearly, this issue of Commonwealth Trade Hot Topics offers a preliminary guide to the potential areas of change and an assessment of how these might impact upon developing countries in general (including least developed countries and small vulnerable economies) and on members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) group of states in particular. The Trade Hot Topics series provides concise and informative analyses of various trade and trade-related issues which are prepared both by Commonwealth Secretariat and international experts.
