All the countries of Western Europe are members of EU and NATO. All but United Kingdom use Euro currency. All but Britain and Ireland are members of the Schengen Agreement.

The notion "Western Europe" is sometimes confused with the "Western Bloc", which was a Cold War name for the market economy countries of Europe as opposed to the Eastern Bloc behind the iron curtain. Hence e.g. Greece was concerned a part of the Western Bloc, while Yugoslavia was part of the Eastern Bloc even if geography would imply the other way round.
