International institutions

Belgium has always maintained that global challenges can only be overcome in a multilateral framework and is therefore almost systematically a founding member of all these international organisations, including not only the European Union and the United Nations, but also other organisations like the OECD, the OSCE and the Council of Europe. This overall problem-solving framework aims to provide solutions to these challenges and to ensure that the positive developments resulting from globalisation are both sustainable and shared fairly across the world’s population.
