European Council

The European Council is the EU institution that defines the general political direction and priorities of the EU.Its members are the heads of state or government of the 28 EU Member States, the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission.

The European Council is not one of the legislative institutions of the EU, and therefore does not negotiate or adopt EU legislation. Instead, it sets the EU's policy agenda, deals with complex or sensitive issues that cannot be resolved at lower levels of intergovernmental cooperation and sets the common foreign and security policy of the EU. On each issue, the Council adopts 'conclusions' which identify the issues of concern and actions to take and, when needed, makes a proposal to the European Commission to address the topic or passes it to the Council of the EU.

North Atlantic Treaty Organization

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an international political and military alliance based on the North Atlantic Treaty which was signed on 4 April 1949. It consists of 28 member countries across North America and Europe. 22 additional countries participate in NATO's Partnership for Peace programme.

NATO was little more than a political association until the Korean War galvanized the organization's member states, and an integrated military structure was built. The organization constitutes a system of collective defence whereby its member states agree to mutual defence in response to an attack by any external party. Thus far, this precedure has been invoked one time, after the September 11 attacks, when troops were deployed to Afghanistan under the NATO-led ISAF.
