The Commission takes part in the discussions only on a non-voting basis. Although the Treaties refer to a single Council of Ministers, it has several different compositions. The meetings of Ministers of Agriculture, Finance, Social Affairs and so on are called 'Technical' or 'Specialist' Councils because of their limited responsibility for specific sectors. Foreign Ministers The Institutions of the European Community 23 are usually held to have a responsibility for the overall coordination of Community policies - although they have frequently been unable to impose their will on some of their Ministerial peers -as well as external affairs in what is known either as the Foreign Affairs Council or the General Council.

The third, and perhaps most controversial of the Commission's tasks, is also the most unfamiliar. The Commission is required by the treaties to be the watchdog, or 'conscience', of the Community in monitoring the implementation of Community policies in the member states, and making sure that Community obligations are honoured. The Commission is, therefore, empowered to take member states to the Court of justice for disobeying or failing to carry out Community rules. When combined with the Commission's exclusive right to propose legislation (a right which remains even if the initial impetus behind a new measure may come from a member state), this policing role carries important political connotations, in that the Commission acts as a 'motor' of the Community.

The much more informal foreign policy machinery has been considered a success and at least some governments have preferred to avoid the pressures and rules of the formal Community institutions. This has given rise to a great deal of discussion on the future institutional framework of the European Community. The creation of the European Council confirms the trend away from the precise balance, created by the Treaties, between the interests of member states (represented in the Council) and the wider Community interest (sponsored by the Commission).
