Summary/Abstract: Negotiations of funding periods in the European Union (EU) are characterised by a constant cycle, repeating every seven years. Although the EU general budget covers only about 1% of Gross National Income (GNI) across the EU, its size, revenue structure, and expenditures produce great tension and attract much public opinion in Member States. Individual governments are trying at all costs to defend their net position, which forms a deadlock, preventing any more rational discussion about reform of EU finances.
