Abstract
This review of the positions of European Union Member States on the institutional reform supplements the report published by the Polish Institute of International Affairs in May 2007, prior to the meeting of the European Council that was to decide on the fate of the Constitutional Treaty (Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Europe, TCE) and, in broader terms, on the institutional reform. This paper discusses the developments until the June meeting of the European Council although, in some interesting cases (e.g. the Czech Republic), the paper also tackles the issues that emerged following the end of the Councils session.
