ABSTRACT
The leadership of the European Union has become an essential challange given the multiple problems the organization is currently facing. The economic crisis, amplified in Europe on the background of worldwide globalization, increased euroscepticism and increased political extremism in the EU member states, increasingly complex relationships with international partners, the internal problems inherent to the functioning of a bloc of 27 member states constitute the delicate issues on the list of responsabilities of the "job description" of a leader of the EU. In order to clarify the question of who is currently running the European Union and what are the factors that must be taken into account, we shall review the competences of the main institutions of the EU. At the same time, we shall point out the challanges that the current context poses to the act of leadership in the EU. The research method used is the study of documents and materials identified on specialised websites. The study is aimed at pencilling the profile of a leader (an individual or an organisation) who can lead the European Union in the extremely complex current political and economic context.
