Supranational union

  • a supranational union is a type of multinational political union where negotiated power is delegated to an authority by governments of member states.

    the term is sometimes used to describe the european union (eu) as a new type of political entity.[1] it is the only entity that provides for international popular elections,[dubious ] going beyond the level of political integration normally afforded by international treaties.

    the term "supranational" is sometimes used in a loose, undefined sense in other contexts such as a substitute for international, transnational or global.
