Visions, Votes and Vetoes: Reassessing the Luxembourg Crisis 40 Years on


This joint project of the Department of History and Civilisation, the Historical Archives of the European Union, and the RSCAS reassesses the 'Empty Chair' Crisis and Luxembourg Compromise of 1965/6 in the European Economic Community both through access to historical documents and memoirs and in the light of subsequent decision-making in the Council.


The project involves a network of historians, lawyers and political scientists and has had funding from the Fondation Paul-Henri Spaak.
