XV Ireland - 1996

The XV COSAC took place in Dublin on 15-16 October 1996. The future role of national parliaments and COSAC in the EU were at the forefront of the agenda, as the conference was the perhaps last chance for national parliaments to reach a common position to influence the outcome of the IGC. On 10 October 1996 the COSAC Presidential Troika had agreed a set of recommendations to reinforce Declaration 13 and the functioning of COSAC. The conclusions of the report were largely approved by delegations in the conclusions of the XV COSAC.
