The Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC), a NATO institution, is a multilateral forum created to improve relations between NATO and non-NATO countries in Europe and those parts of Asia on the European periphery. States meet to cooperate and go to the range of political and security issues. It was formed on January 1, 1997 as the failure to the North Atlantic Cooperation Council (NACC) and works alongside the Partnership for Peace (PfP), both created post-Cold War - the former in 1991, the latter in 1994.
