The European Commission 2010-14
Profiles and priorities
The European Commission — led by its President José Manuel Barroso — is made up of a college of 27 Commissioners, one from every European Union country. Each Commissioner deals with a specific policy area, functioning in a similar way to ministers in national governments. This brochure provides a brief insight into the work of the European Commission. It presents all of the Commissioners, their policy portfolios and the priorities they have set out for their five-year terms of office.
