The study examines the extent to which the 2007-13 financial perspective of the EU member-states allows a common policy to emerge in certain areas, and whether that common policy will decide the common budget after 2007 or the other way round. The author examines the question specifically from the point of view of the EU as a whole and its future. The article does not set out to present the member-states' positions in detail or the history of the disputes between them. These are touched upon only insofar as this is necessary when examining the relation between the common budget and certain areas of common policy.
