ClientEarth brief: The Special Committee on Agriculture – a sixty-year-old obstacle to an environmentally ambitious CAP?

This paper is a brief summary of an in-depth legal analysis of the Council’s main preparatory body in charge of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the Special Committee on Agriculture (SCA). This analysis questions the lawfulness of the SCA’s role in the Council decision-making process and, consequently, the ability of the Council to adopt a coherent approach to the ongoing CAP Reform in the context of the European Green Deal.
