Having in mind changes made by the Lisbon Treaty in 2009, the European Union has been committed to changing its observer status to the General Assembly of the United Nations. Following an unsuccessful attempt in 2010, the European Union gained additional rights within its observer status to the UN General Assembly in 2011. The paper analyzes benefits of the improved observer status of the European Union in the UN General Assembly, the EU priorities at the UN General Assembly and practical effects of the improved observer status of the European Union in the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Keywords: Lisbon Treaty, European Union, General Assembly, United Nations, observer status, priorities
