Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
wut now?, 24 June Reformation
The current and full-fledged iteration of the EU treaties dates [waaaaaaaay] back to 2009 [worldwide financial panic], several years after a round of aggressive eastward expansion that saw 12 new members join.

The treaties are essentially the EU's constitution, ["]sketching out["] the bloc's institutions, ["]clarifying the breakdown["] of powers between the [European Council and Council of the] EU and [27 states + 4 EFTA] members, and ["]outlining["] how decisions < wipes tears> are made. Since the EU's founding in the 1950s, they have been revised several times as ["]the body["] morphs and grows.
In parallel, the EU in 2021 also launched a "Conference on the Future of Europe," an eight-month-long ["]self-reflection forum["]  that asked citizens to offer thoughts on revising the ["]current and full-fledged iteration of the["] international institution EU treaties.
