NATO PA International Secretariat
The headquarters of the Assembly’s 30-Strong International Secretariat is based in Brussels, Belgium and overseen by the Secretary General.
The International Secretariat performs a dual function: on the one hand, it conducts much of the research and analysis necessary for the substantive output of the Assembly's Committees, and on the other, it provides the administrative support required to organize sessions, seminars, Committee meetings, and other Assembly activities.
In addition to its research and administrative functions, the International Secretariat maintains a close working relationship with NATO, other international organizations and research institutes.
The International Secretariat’s policy staff and managementprovides briefings on NATO-PA activities and concerns to visiting parliamentary groups, journalists, and academics.
