To mark the 50th anniversary of the adoption by the North Atlantic Council in ministerial session of the Report of the Committee of Three on Non-Military Co-operation in NATO, the NATO Archives is posting online the complete collection of the documents produced by the Committee of Three between June and November 1956.

In their report, the Foreign Ministers of Canada, L.B. Pearson, Italy, Gaetano Martino, and Norway, Halvald Lange, also known as the ”Three Wise Men”,  called for increased political consultation, the improvement and extension of co-operation in economic, scientific, cultural and information fields and for greater unity and solidarity in the Atlantic community.

This online publication is the first in a series of commemorative projects through which the NATO Archives hopes to help the public become better acquainted with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and its history.
