Managing the Presidency of the Council of the EU - The Practicalities of Chairing Council Working Parties
The rotating Presidency plays a central role in managing the formulation of Council decisions. A successful Presidency depends in particular on the abilities of the working party chairpersons and their teams to ensure momentum and achieve results in a complex multinational arena. This seminar looks into the strategic, logistical, procedural and practical actions required to successfully manage a Council working party during a Presidency in the post-Lisbon architecture. The seminar also aims to contribute to an exchange of practices and to foster connections between consecutive Presidencies.
