Brexit – Which Bits of Europe Don’t You Like?

I just had to look up some environmental legislation for the course I’m studying, and entered the maze of “which organization belongs to who”? I thought it was worth sharing, given the upcoming referendum.

Anyone in Britain who knows which of these organizations they approve of and which they don’t is better informed than most 🙂

Part of the EU Not part of the EU
European Council
Council of the European Union/Council of Ministers
Council of Europe
European Court of Justice European Court of Human Rights
International Court of Justice (at The Hague)
International Criminal Court (at The Hague)
European Central Bank (ECB)
European Investment Bank
Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB)
European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)
Economic Commission for Europe (part of the UN)
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
World Bank
…and of course the UN itself.

Don’t blame the EU for this confusion. I guess we need some different english words for ‘Council’ and ‘Bank’. Or ‘Europe’.
