  • ULTRA PERIPHERAL REGIONS

    The ultra peripheral regions represent seven areas: the Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique and Reunion as well as the Azores, the Canaries and Madeira.

  • UNANIMITY

    When taking decisions on some issues, the Council of the European Union has to be in unanimous agreement – i.e. all countries have to agree. Any disagreement, even by one single country, will block the decision. This would make progress very difficult in a Union of 27 countries, so the unanimity rule now applies only in particularly sensitive areas such as asylum, taxation and the common foreign and security policy. In most fields, decisions are now taken by qualified majority voting.
