The Hungarian Atlantic Council was established in 1992 as a non-profit, non-governmental organization concerned with NATO and Hungarian interests in the Atlantic community. It seeks to promote and enhance the principles of Euro-Atlantism at all levels in Hungarian society. Recentely the activities of the Council have been focused on the practical aspects of NATO and EU membership and Trans-Atlantic relations. Moreover, the Council sees the need to further develop democratic culture at the grassroots level in Hungary. Accordingly increasing attention has been focused on educational projects for Hungarian academics, policy makers, members of private sector, students, teachers, and people in the media at all levels.
