European Union (EU).

The European Council's members include the heads of state of all EU countries and the president of the European Commission.


The European Council:

  • Decides on the EU's overall direction and political priorities – but does not pass laws.
  • Deals with complex or sensitive issues that cannot be resolved at lower levels of intergovernmental cooperation.
  • Sets the EU's common foreign & security policy, taking into account EU strategic interests and defence implications.
  • Nominates and appoints candidates to certain high profile EU level roles, such as the European Central Bank and the European Commission.
