Diplomatic missions of the European Commission

The member states of the European Union speak with the same voice on many issues. Collectively it is the world’s largest trading block and donor of humanitarian and development assistance, and thus has an extensive network of delegations around the world. The EU also represents shared political and security viewpoints held by its member states, as articulated in the Common Foreign and Security Policy.

The EU’s predecessor, the European Coal and Steel Community, opened its first mission in London in 1955, three years after non-EU countries began to accredit their missions in Brussels to the Community. The number of delegates began to rise in the 1960s following the merging of the executive institutions of the three European Communities into a single Commission. Until recently some states had reservations accepting that EU delegations held the full status of a diplomatic mission. Article 20 of the Maastrict Treaty requires the Delegations and the Member States’ diplomatic missions to "co-operate in ensuring that the common positions and joint actions adopted by the Council are complied with and implemented”.

Management of the EU’s foreign relations is conducted by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for External Relations. The European Commission sends its delegates generally only to the capitals of states outside the European Union and cities hosting multilateral bodies.

The EU missions work separately from the work of the missions of its member states, however in some circumstances it may share resources and facilities. In Abuja is shares its premises with a number of member states [ [http://ec.europa.eu/external_relations/delegations/intro/ms.htm Unified External Service of the European Commission] ] .
