The European Organisation of Military Associations (EUROMIL) is a politically independent, not-for-profit organisation of free, democratic associations of military personnel in Europe.
EUROMIL was founded in 1972. It is an umbrella organisation, comprising 39 associations from 26 European countries, and thereby representing nearly 500,000 individuals.
Its mission is to promote and defend the socio-professional interests of all ranks and status groups of soldiers and their families at European level. Moreover, EUROMIL aims at securing and advancing the human rights and fundamental freedoms of soldiers by monitoring European developments and advocating the association’s interests.
EUROMIL’s headquarters, an international secretariat, is located in Brussels, Belgium. Its main role is to facilitate the exchange of information, in particular best practices, between member associations.
The organisation maintains formal contacts with the Council of Europe, the European Union Institutions, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Parliamentary Assembly, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC).
EUROMIL’s partners are the Parliamentarians Network for Conflict Prevention (PN/EWI), the European Security Round Table (ESRT), Dr. Manfred Wörner Circle (DMWC) and most recently the European Movement International (EMI).
