European Union (EU) Agencies
At the EU there are 23 community agencies, three agencies operating in the field of the Common Security and Defence Policy, three agencies operating in the field of police and judicial cooperation on criminal matters, six executive agencies entrusted by the Commission with the execution of a specific programme, two agencies created to support the aims of the European Atomic Energy Community Treaty (EURATOM), and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology All of these agencies, though very different along a number of organizational dimensions,1 are from a legal-institutional point of view ‘EU Agencies’ (or ‘EU Decentralized Bodies’).
