Committee of the Regions (CoR)

The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is the political assembly of local and regional authorities set up in 1994 to give elected European local authorities a voice. The Commission and the Council are obliged to consult the CoR for proposals that have repercussions for the regions, while it can also draw up an opinion on its own initiative, which enables it to put issues on the EU agenda. The CoR has 344 members and an equal number of "alternate members", which belong to one of four political groups.
