Jargon Buster Directory  

 
The Central Source for all Jargon

Community - European Union

This is a very simplistic directory covering the basic aspects of European Union jargon. There is another level of European jargon that we are currently working on that will be mind blowing when it is finished.

European Union jargon as described here is very limited and one could even say patronising in its contents.  We are a bit embarrassed by this temporary European Union jargon directory section.

Hopefully we will be in a position to update it shortly.
