In connection with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome, the leaders of the member states of the European Union issued a political declaration to mark the occasion. The so-called Berlin Declaration was intended as a manifestation of the EU's unity in the face of challenges of globalization. However, the document gave rise to some controversies concerning both procedural questions and emphases in its contents. For the German presidency the declaration is an important step towards resolving the crisis caused by the disruption of the process of ratification of the constitutional treaty.
