This paper explores the issues that had to be solved in 2007 in order to arrive at a compromise between governments in favour of the Constitutional Treaty and governments that opposed it. It explains the alternatives that were available in order to draft a treaty that would be different from the Constitutional Treaty of 2004 while saving the entire substance of the innovations that had been agreed upon by all Governments with their signing of the Constitutional Treaty. It shows the technical logic that supports the choices made for drafting the Lisbon treaty in the political context of 2007.
