Arab League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1267 words)
The Arab League resembles the Organization of American States, the Council of Europe, or the African Union, in that it has primarily political aims; one can regard each of these organizations as a regional version of the United Nations.
The Arab League differs notably from some other regional organizations such as the European Union, in that it has not achieved any significant degree of regional integration and the organization itself has no direct relations with the citizens of its member states.
In turn, the memberships of the smaller GCC and Arab Maghreb Union organizations are subsets of that of the Arab League.
