A UK-EU association agreement: making use of treaty provisions from 1957 originally drafted for the UK

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Relations between the EU and other states can take the form of an ‘association agreement’, which brings the two parties together in a framework of cooperation. It has been suggested that such a model may be adopted by the EU and the U.K. after Brexit.

This paper traces the roots of the association agreement model to the terms of the Treaty of Rome, signed by the six founding members of the European Economic Community in 1957. Furthermore, it argues that the provisions were inserted into the text with the U.K. in mind, in order to pave the way for future cooperation between the Community and its neighbour. Indeed, it appears the U.K. knew this: during the negotiations British officials had access to under the counter͛ copies of key documents , and with ministerial approval, sought to influence the wording.
