With entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty on December 1, 2009 a long-awaited EU institutional framework has been established. The main goal of this Treaty is to enable more efficient, transparent and democratic work of the institutions. The Lisbon Treaty regulates the institutions of the Union: European Parliament, European Council, Council, European Commission, The Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the Court of Auditors. Apart from defining the Union institutions, the Treaty brings also many changes through introduction of the new positions in the work of the institutions. The changes and the adjustments are necessary but are either the member states or the institutions themselves ready for these important changes?
