  Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe (TCE), commonly referred to as the European Constitution, is an international treaty intended to create a constitution for the European Union.
The current debate on the future of Europe is often said to have begun with a speech made by German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer in Berlin in 2000 [1], calling for a debate on the finality of European integration.
The rejection of the constitution in the referenda in France and the Netherlands, made the TCE's future and the implementation of its provisions highly uncertain, provoking a crisis of confidence in the project which has resulted, at least initially, in a degree of strategic paralysis.

 History of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The European Convention was established, presided over by former French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, and was given the task of consulting as widely as possible across Europe with the aim of producing a first draft of the Constitution.
Ireland's own constitution, for example, requires that a constitutional referendum be held on all international treaties concerning a transfer of national sovereignty, while Germany's constitution prohibits a referendum.
The Constitution was passed by a large margin, with 77 per cent of voters in favour, but major opposition parties declared that the 42 per cent turnout was an embarrassment for the governing Spanish Socialist Workers' Party.

Treaties are binding in international law, the rules being laid down in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties 1969.
Thus treaties are made by the Crown, that is the Queen acting on the advice of her ministers, with the representatives of the supreme authority of the state with whom the treaty is agreed.
Treaties as a source of rules of international law have also been given an added importance by virtue of the large number of new subjects of international law which have been created since the birth of the United Nations, many of which are socialist states.

 German Law Journal - Death by Constitution? The Draft Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Europe
But, in fact, the Draft constitution (we will use this term as a convenient shorthand and so as to under­line the sense of alienation that oozes from the use of the term constitution, although it would be better to speak of a draft trea­ty) raises issues on a number of rather funda­mental points.
But not only a constitution: the Convention was also expected to simplify the existing trea­ties and streamline them, and was given the task of figuring out what to do with human rights, now that the EU Charter of Funda­mental Rights had proved acceptable to the member states, albeit in a non-binding form.
[29] In order to become the constitution of Europe, the draft, as amended by the intergovernmental conference, will have to be accepted by the individual member states in accordance with their domestic procedures and constitutional requirements; and given the influence of the Presidium on the draft, that is a good thing too.
