The European Council sets the impetus of the EU.

Treaty change is made here too.

How are decisions taken in the European Council?

Is it unanimity?

1 Answer 1


It depends on the decision being made.

Most decisions are made by consensus. If a vote is required by the treaties, then the decision will be made either by Qualified Majority (16 states representing 65% of the population), or unanimously, depending on what the treaties require for the particular decision.
