European Commission

Die Europäische Kommission, abgekürzt: EU-Kommission, ist ein supranationales Organ der Europäischen Union (EU). Im politischen System der EU nimmt sie vor allem Aufgaben der Exekutive wahr und entspricht damit ungefähr der Regierung in einem staatlichen System. Sie hat jedoch noch weitere Funktionen, insbesondere bis auf einige in den Gründungsverträgen genannte Fälle das alleinige Initiativrecht im EU-Gesetzgebungsverfahren. Als „Hüterin der Verträge“ überwacht sie die Einhaltung des Europarechts durch die EU-Mitgliedstaaten und kann gegebenenfalls Klage gegen einen EU-Staat beim Europäischen Gerichtshof erheben.

  • Human rights and the EU/Britische Zeitungen verwechselt EU (wieder)

    …, football, rugby – what really is the difference? There's a wonderful book by Tom Kennedy, Learning European Law - A Primer and Vade-mecum - unfortunately dated 1998 and I presume not likely to be updated.
