There is great diversity when it comes to the follow-up actions. In the area of education and culture President Tusk was asked to draft conclusions, whilst in the area of migration he was asked to ‘present a way forward’. The latter formula allowed for flexibility, as it provided the possibility to organise another leaders’ meeting on migration if necessary, based on a new note, in line with the initial Leaders’ meetings schedule announced in October 2017 (see above). In the case of the next institutional cycle and of the MFF, the EU leaders indicated that it was their task to follow-up on these aspects, either by deciding on the European Parliament composition after Brexit, or by reaching an agreement on the next MFF. Nevertheless, in some of the notes, the language used was similar to that of the European Council conclusions – calling on EU leaders to return to the topic at the upcoming European Council or Euro Summit.
