German president ratified EU reform treaty
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On September 25, 2009, German President Horst Koehler signed the Lisbon Treaty, which completed his country's problematic ratification of reforms that were aimed at restructuring the constitutional framework of the EU. Specifically, the reform treaty sought to increase the EU's role as a global actor by making the political union more democratic, transparent and efficient. The Lisbon Treaty went into legal effect in December 2010, following its ratification by all 27 EU member-states.
