Summary/Abstract: The Lisbon Treaty introduced changes to the institutional architecture of the European Union. Aware of the weight of its new competences, the Parliament has been seeking to promote the practice of inter-institutional cooperation in the EU, which is favourable to the MEPs, and also gain new political concessions in respect of the EU’s decision-making process, which would weaken the position of the Council. Watching the activities of the Parliament and its emerging relations with the EU Council in the post-Lisbon period, it can be concluded that an inter-institutional agreement is indeed, one which would also involve the Council as a party.
