The EU legislation diagram shows a flow chart of typical legislation in the EU, concretely the so-called "Ordinary Legislation Process". The chart was initially created in order to support "The Law Game", an educational game developed by Coop SAPSE in Korsika. It was developed after we found various other created by thirds parties not suitable. The diagram can be useful also for many other purposes - everywhere where the question is: How does a thing become law in th EU?

We provide two different types of Pdf files:

  1. Single page; this is set in approximately A3 paper but it can be printed also smaller, or - better - larger (if you have a plotter), as most of its elements are vector graphics and don't lose precision when enlarging
  2. The poster split into 4 pages, with overlaps for glueing. This allows you to print the file on an ordinary office printer (A4 sized paper), and then cut and glue together the 4 pages to get a reasonably sized poster that you can stick to the wall.
