“Never waste a crisis to unravel the DNA of the EU”

Everything you always wanted to know about (or how well acquainted are you with) the European Institutions, such as the European Parliament, the European Council, the Council of the European Union, the European Court of Auditors, the European Court of Justice, the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and more. We will address their institutional architecture, the respective responsibilities, the functioning of the different bodies and their whereabouts.
