Founded in 1972, EUROMIL has a membership of 34 associations from 22 European countries, and thereby representing nearly 500,000 individuals.[1]

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, amongst others, the Kangaroo Group, Friends of Europe and the European Movement International (EMI).[2]
