Originally founded in 1972, the European Organisation of Military Associations (EUROMIL) is an umbrella organisation of military associations and trade unions representing soldiers of all ranks and their families at international level. It is the main Europe-wide forum for cooperation among professional military associations on issues of common concern. Through the international secretariat in Brussels, EUROMIL facilitates the exchange of information, experiences and best practice among member associations and strives to secure and advance the human rights, fundamental freedoms and socio-professional interests of military personnel. EUROMIL particularly promotes the concept of “Citizen in Uniform”, which means that a soldier is entitled to the same rights and obligations as any other citizen, and calls for recognition of the right of servicemen and -women to form and join independent associations and trade unions and for their inclusion in a regular social dialogue by the authorities.
