The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has 350 members representing local and regional authorities from all 28 EU Member States. They gather in plenary in Brussels 5 to 6 times a year to discuss political priorities and adopt opinions 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.
CoR members are grouped according to their political affiliation – EPP, PES, ALDE, EA or ECR – and areas of interest – commissions.
