This chapter investigates the relevance of the dawn of European integration for the present and the future. In the early 1950s the six founding Member States of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) envisaged a supranational European Defense Community (EDC) in charge of a European defence policy which would even have included a European army. This chapter provides an overview of the Community envisaged in the EDC Treaty. It also discusses the supranational nature of the EDC as reflected in its institutional law, its defensive character, its principle of non-discrimination between Member States, and the connection to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).

Keywords:   European Coal and Steel Community, European Defense Community, EDC Treaty, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, European army
