Fact sheets on the European Union

The Fact Sheets are intended to provide non‑specialists with a straightforward and concise overview of the EU's institutions and policies, and of the role that Parliament plays in their development. They were created in 1979 for Parliament’s first direct elections and since then are regularly reviewed and revised. Since they are short and to‑the‑point, the Fact Sheets can also be of great use to a range of professionals, civil servants and students with an interest in European Union affairs. This online version is reviewed and updated at regular intervals throughout the year, as soon as the European Parliament adopts any important positions or policies.  They are available in 23 languages.
