Abstract

This report makes a first, exploratory attempt at examining the extent and nature of negotiating activity within EWCs. It focuses on examples of written joint texts concerning issues other than the EWC’s own constitution or internal affairs and looks in detail at 14 joint texts. The report concludes that the negotiation of joint texts by EWCs is a very restricted, if potentially important, phenomenon, which could be said to constitute a form of European-level bargaining.
