  • Petr Kaniok
Keywords: EU Council Presidency, European Integration, European Constitution, Enlargement of the European Union, public support for EU membership

Abstract

The EU Council Presidency is considered a very influential and suitable tool for domestic communication of European integration and its agenda. The article analyses the last ten EU Council Presidencies and their impact on public support to the key elements of European integration. The hypothesis of the article is the argument that the EU Council Presidency in its current form increases support for the European integration (and its key elements) and increases the level of knowledge about European integration among the public.
