The United Nations declared 1994 as the International Year of the Family with the theme "The resources and the responsibilities of the family in a changing world". The goal was to foster a better understanding of the needs of families and how to respond to them.
The Western European Union is a political and military defense organization created in 1954 by France, Great Britain, Italy, Germany, and the Benelux countries.
