SUMMITS AND THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL (1961-1995)

This is a guide to the documents on AEI-EU relating to meetings of the Heads of State or Government and the European Council. It covers not only the conclusions and communiques issued at the end of the meetings but also the policy documents presented for the meetings whenever possible. Not every document is covered as some were confidential and were not available. It is also possible that in the vast array of EU documents some have been overlooked. The AEI-EU editors would appreciate any contributions to making this guide as complete as possible.

Prior to the first summit, there were a series of bilateral contacts betweens Heads of State or Government starting with the De Gaulle/Adenauer meeting at Rambouillet on July 29-30, 1960. These meetings covered a range of topics including political unification, direct election of the European Parliament, the EEC/EFTA split and defense issues.

**NOTE**: A few of the titles listed below are not yet available on the AEI. If the title is underlined, it is available - if it is not underlined, it will be available as soon as we can get it uploaded.

THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL (1975-1995)

At the 1994 Paris meeting, a new format for meetings of the Heads of State or Government was agreed upon, and the term "Summit Conferences" was replaced by the term European Council. The Single European Act of 1986, amending the Treaties, gave formal status to the European Council. Article 2 of the Single Act provides that the Heads of States or Government, assisted by Ministers of Foreign Affairs and a Member of the Commission, would meet at least twice a year. Since 1989, the President of the European Parliament has been invited to attend.

The AEI-EU includes "summit" documents through 1995. Starting in 1996, reports on the meetings of the European Council can be found electronically in:

Other sources of information for earlier years to the present are:
  • RAPID, the press release database of the European Commission.
  • Summit Archives offered by the European Parliament.
