Lisbon treaty entered into force

On December 1, 2009, the Lisbon Treaty went into effect after more than two years of negotiations. The treaty, which was ratified by all 27 EU member-states, was crafted to make the EU more democratic, transparent and efficient, and to increase the EU's role as a global actor. Within the framework of the treaty, Herman Van Rompuy took office as the EU's first president in January.
