European Parliament Report on the legal personality of the European Union (21 November 2001)

Whereas the three European Communities all have legal personality, and are therefore subjects of international public law, the European Union is simply a Union of States without legal personality of its own, and without the capacity to act at international level. On 21 November 2001, the Committee on Constitutional Affairs of the European Parliament submits a report containing proposals for the simplification of the Union's structure and the recognition of its single, legal personality.
