The EU decision-making process 

 
 

How are decisions taken in the EU? Is the EU decision-making process really so complicated? Watch this video and all will become clear... in just 20 seconds!

It might seem complicated, but it is actually very simple: the European Commission makes proposals for new laws, taking into account recommendations from civil society, the European Parliament and member states.

 

The Parliament reviews and amends these proposals together with the EU Council and once there is an agreement, the law enter into force in all EU countries.
