Division in Western Europe the beginning inject a supra national element into the new organization. We should perhaps at this point pause to define what is meant by supra nationalism. It can refer to a situation in which international administrative institutions exercise power over, for example, the economies of the nation states. Thus the High Authority of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) was endowed with powers over the economies of the Six and these powers were exercised independently of the Council of Ministers. Alternatively, it can refer to a situation in which ministerial bodies, when taking decisions (to be implemented by international administrations), work on a majority voting system rather than by insisting on unanimity. The French view was not shared by the British. The latter favoured a body which was under the control of a ministerial council in which decisions should be taken on a unanimity basis.
