Committees The European Union at a glance: see the Fact Sheets online

The Fact Sheets on the EU provide an overview of European integration and of Parliament's contribution to that process. They present a brief, straightforward overview of the EU's institutions and policies, and of Parliament's role in their development. Available in 23 languages, they cover six main areas: how the EU works; a citizens' Europe; the internal market; the economic and monetary union; sectoral policies; and the EU's external relations. The online version is updated regularly.
