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|
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)
…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’.
