The debate that took place in the Federal Republic of Germany on the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe deserves special attention on account of the social involvement it triggered. The Constitutional Treaty was discussed not only by politicians and journalists, but also in many academic circles. The issue at stake was whether constitutionalization was the right way of reforming the European Union and solving its institutional problems. The debate was accompanied by a growing public support for the Constitutional Treaty. While intellectuals discussed ways of overcoming the constitutional impasse, Germany, during it presidency of the Council of the European Union was actively engaged in finalizing reforms of the Treaty. Today the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe is already part of the history of European integration, but Germany's involvement in the process of treaty changes, accompanied by a broad public debate, show that Germans wish to be seen as a society actively building its European image.
