This chapter shows how the institutions of the European Union are portrayed in the French and British press. In particular, it looks at the way the press represents the ‘decision‐making triangle’, the European Commission, the European Council, and the European Parliament, with particular attention paid to the grammatical concept of agency. It shows how the first of these three institutions is mentioned in the press far more than the other two, and concludes that ‘as far as the press is concerned, the effective heart of EU governance would appear to be the European Commission’.

Keywords:   EU institutions, decision‐making triangle, agency
