It is well known that the Lisbon Treaty introduced the European Citizens’ Initiative as a new right for European Union citizens. If supported by at least 1 million citizens, an initiative can invite ‘the European Commission, within the framework of its powers, to submit any appropriate proposal on matters where citizens consider that a legal act of the Union is required for the purpose of implementing the Treaties’.
