Another October EU Summit, Another Beginning

Ever since the beginning of the crisis (2008), the October EU summits have turned into the beginning of a new round of architectural changes which by the December European Council take a final form.

It is in this part of the discussions that European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi will join the leaders.
