supranational

greater than a state. More specially, a supranational organization is different from a superstate or a federation. While it is bigger than a nation, the supranational organization is limited in the functions for which it is responsible. Its first legal appearance was in the EUROPEAN COAL AND STEEL COMMUNITY (ECSC) Treaty in which the high authority was that Community, the precursor of the commission. The treaty obliged the members to refrain from action incompatible with the supranational character of their duties. The Member States were enjoined to respect this supranational character.
