Council of the European Union
The Council of the European Union is the upper house of the legislative body of the European Union. The Council is composed by the different Ministers of the European Union, and can take on 10 different configurations depending on the matter in hand. This means that for each different configuration, there will be different Ministers from each member state,Container ie. if the General Affair Council is taking place, delegates will represent the Foreign Minister of their country, whereas if the Agricultural and Fisheries Council is in session, the respective Agricultural Ministers will be represented and so on.
Topic A: Reform of the Common Agricultural Policy
Topic B: Redrafting the Dublin Regulation
