Recent publications on the European Council

We would like to present two recent publications on the European Council to our readers:

The European Council is one of the 7 EU institutions. It defines the EU’s overall political direction and priorities. It is not one of the EU’s legislating institutions, so it does not negotiate or adopt EU laws. Instead the European Council sets the EU’s policy agenda, traditionally by adopting ‘conclusions’ at European Council meetings which identify issues of concern and actions to take.

  • More recent literature on the European Council can be found here.

The Library is open to all staff of the Council of the European Union and the European Council, trainees, staff of the Permanent Representations of Member States and of other EU institutions and bodies, as well as to researchers and students (on appointment by e-mail at library@consilium.europa.eu). Access to some Library stock may be restricted to on-site consultation.
