The Institutions of the European Union

The seven Institutions of the European Union are the bodies through which policies and legislation of the Union are formulated and implemented. The Union’s institutions can only exercise those responsibilities that have been allocated to them by the Member States.

The European Council guides the work of the Union, while the decision-making and legislative process is carried forward by the Council of Ministers, the European Parliament and the European Commission.

The Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Central Bank, and the European Court of Auditors carry out vital roles in their areas of responsibility.
