Fact Sheets of the European Union

The Fact Sheets were created in 1979 for Parliament’s first direct elections. Since then, they have been regularly reviewed and revised. They are intended to provide non‑specialists with a straightforward and concise overview of the European Union’s institutions and policies, and of the role that Parliament plays in their development.


Further publications on the EU are available from the European Public Information Centre at 18 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, tel 01 634 1111.
