Države članice Evropske unije so se s članstvom v EU strinjale, da del svojih pristojnosti na določenih političnih področjih prenesejo na institucije EU.

Pravo EU prav tako neposredno ali posredno vpliva na zakone držav članic in postane del pravnega sistema vseh držav članic. Evropska unija je tudi sama vir zakonodaje. Pravni sistem je običajno razdeljen v primarno zakonodajo (pogodbe in splošna pravna načela), sekundarno zakonodajo (temelječo na pogodbah) in dopolnilne zakone.

The European Parliament is expected to vote on a motion for a resolution on 'Addressing refugee and migrant movements: the role of EU External Action' during the April I plenary session.
