NATO

North Atlantic Treaty Organization

Committee Description

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is the world’s largest and most powerful political and military alliance. It consists of members from predominantly Western-European states and the two North American powers of Canada and the United States. Its founding ideal was to protect the security and freedoms of the Western Nations, by inhibiting the Soviet military aggression. An attack on a single member of the organization is the equivalent of an attack on all NATO member states.

NATO was established in April 1949 in response to the threats of Soviet aggression and the spread of communist ideology. Comprised of 28 member states from Europe and the Middle East, NATO is a defensive military alliance that seeks to protect its member states and allies. An attack on a single member of the organization is the equivalent of an attack on all NATO member states.

NATO is an intermediate committee. Prior experience in MUN and debate is highly recommended; however, anyone with interest or strong delegating skills may participate if they wish to.
