The NATO Military Committee (MC) is the senior military authority in NATO and the oldest permanent body in NATO after the North Atlantic Council, both having been formed only months after the Alliance came into being. It is the primary source of military advice to the North Atlantic Council and the Nuclear Planning Group, and gives direction to the two Strategic Commanders: Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Supreme Allied Commander Transformation.

As such, it is an essential link between the political decision-making process and the military structure of NATO.

The Military Committee is responsible for translating political decision and guidance into military direction, and for recommending measures considered necessary for the defense of the NATO area and the implementation of decisions regarding military operations.

This committee is suitable for experienced delegates.
