sdfsdfsdffsddgsdThe European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) was a six-nation international organisation serving to unify democratic countries of Europe during the Cold War and create the foundationfor the modern-day developments of the European Union. The ECSC was the first organisation to be based on the principles of supranationalism.[2]
The ECSC was first proposed by French foreign ministerRobert Schuman on 9 May 1950 as a way to prevent further war between France and Germany.

The ECSC was governed by a "High Authority", checked by bodies representing governments, MPs andan independent judiciary.

In 1967 all its institutions weremerged with that of the European Economic Community (EEC, which later became part of the European Union), but it retained its own independent identity. However in 2002 the Treaty of Paris expired, andwith no desire to renew the treaty, all the ECSC activities and resources were absorbed by the European Community. During its existence, the ECSC had succeeded in creating a common market but couldnot prevent the decline of the coal and steel industries. It did however set the ground for the future European Union.
