Legal personality of the Union and the Treaties of the European Union

Description of Legal personality of the Union provided by the European Union Commission: The question of the Union’s legal status has arisen primarily in connection with its capacity to conclude treaties or accede to agreements or conventions since the Union, which comprises three separate Communities, each with legal personality (European Community, ECSC andEuratom), and two areas of intergovernmental cooperation, does not have what is known in international law as “treaty-making powers”, that is, the international right to conclude agreements with third countries. However, some observers argue that this is a non-existent problem because it does not prevent the Union from concluding agreements and asserting its position on the international stage. The Constitution, which is in the process of ratification, provides for a fundamental change in this area: the replacement of the Union and the European Community by a single European Union with legal personality.
