This CEPS Commentary examines the performance of Latvia over the past six months in its first-ever rotating presidency of the Council of the EU. The authors find that the Baltic state proved that a small administration can achieve concrete results in a short time span.

Gerta Lezi is an intern in the Politics and Institutions research unit at CEPS and Steven Blockmans is Senior Research Fellow and Head of the EU Foreign Policy research unit at CEPS.
