The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created shortly after the end of WW II in 1949 and is dedicated to the security of its 28 Member States through political and military cooperation.

Led by the principle of collective defense (Article 5 of the Washington Treaty), NATO Member States are committed to respond collectively if an armed attack occurs against one of them.

As all NATO decisions are taken by consensus, good negotiation skills are essential for efficient work of this committee.
