The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has
329 members representing local and regional authorities from all 27 EU Member States. They gather in
in Brussels 5 to 6 times a year to discuss political priorities and adopt
on EU legislation.
Members must be democratically elected and/or hold a political mandate in their home country.
Each national government proposes its regional and local representatives
(members and alternates) – national delegations – who must be approved by the Council of the EU.
In April 2019, the
Bureau adopted a
strategy for a gender-balanced participation of members in the CoR.
CoR members are
grouped according to their political affiliation
and areas of interest
