Association Agreement Eec Turkey

61 The « special meeting » between the ECSC Council of Ministers and the Uk Government, which can be convened for discussions on matters within the specific competences of the Council of Ministers of Member State governments, is a second, hithert insignificant, feature within the institutional framework of the EGKS-UK association. The governments of the ECSC member states, the HIGH authority of the ECSC or the UK government may attend a « special meeting ». The establishment of the « special session » seems to be a check on the High Authority, most likely motivated by the fear that this institution would exceed its powers to participate in the work of the Association Council. See Article 10 of the CECA-UK agreement and Soto, p. 234. 56 Euratom has concluded several cooperation agreements with third countries, including the United States and Canada. These agreements are not association agreements, as they do not provide for a particular institutional structure. An association agreement is an international agreement between the European Union or the European Economic Community (EEC) and a third country. By concluding this agreement, the two sides are creating a particular type of relationship and a basis for cooperation.

However, the content and objectives differ from agreement to agreement. Particularly close economic cooperation with the aim of creating largely unlimited trade between participating countries and removing restrictions on the movement of goods is a common essential aspect of the special reciprocal status created by the agreement. However, agreements may also include cooperation on labour and social issues, as well as rules on political dialogue. 10 In particular, financial aid companies. The extent of the agreements will manifest itself later, when their details are discussed. See also, Pescatore, Ibid., 145. The issue of who would be the right contractor to the agreement could have been resolved by submitting this issue to the European Court of Justice, in accordance with Article 228, paragraph 1. However, this procedure was deemed too long. 13 The details of this association include, in addition to Articles 131 to 136 of the EEC Treaty, the agreement to association overseas countries and territories with the Community of Overseas Countries and Territories, signed on 25 March 1957 and annexed to the EEC Treaty.

93 It has been proposed to offer the Community specific compensation to Member States that bear most of the economic and political consequences of a new association. See Ungerer, , Foreign Policy, Vol. 15, No. 10, p. 696-697.Google Scholar Since the creation of the three European Communities (European Coal and Steel Community [ECCA] in 1952 and the European Economic Community [EEC] and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) in 1958], four association agreements have been concluded with third countries. The first was signed by the ECSC and the United Kingdom on 21 December 1954. The other three agreements concluded by the EEC with Greece, a number of new independent African and Malagasy states, as well as with Turkey, were signed on 9 July 1961, 20 July 1963 and 12 September 1963.
