What the Commission is doing
There are 3 institutions mainly responsible for EU policy-making:
- The Commission develops policy and proposes EU legislation.
- It then negotiates its proposals with the European Parliament and Council of the EU
- These institutions then adopt the legislation.
The Commission ensures that the laws are properly applied, opening infringement procedures against EU member countries if not.
The EU's principles and values, countries, and history.
The EU's overall political goals are developed collectively by its institutions. The Commission translates this strategy into policies and initiatives.
Proposed laws need to be agreed on by the Commission before they can be adopted by the European Parliament and Council, the EU's co-legislators.
