The EU Council

The EU Council (which used to be referred to as the 'Council of Ministers') shares the legislative function [in most cases] with the European Parliament. It is made up of a minister from each country representing their state on the particular area that the Council is meeting about (so there are different formations).

The House of Commons Library has produced a paper on the workings, in practice, of the EU Council. Students of EU Law & citizens will find this an interesting insight into one of the key institutions.

The Paper can be accessed here. More information about the EU Council can be found on the Council's website.
