Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Union of European Federalists (UEF) is a nongovernmental and supranational organisation dedicated to the promotion of a democratic and federal Europe.

It consists of 24 constituent organisations and it has been active at the European, national and local levels for more than 65 years. It was founded in 1946, shortly after World War II, with the belief that only a European Federation, based on the idea of unity in diversity, could overcome the division of the European continent that had caused the suffering and destruction of the two World Wars. Federalists believed that only a common effort of European citizens working towards this goal could create a peaceful and democratic Europe guaranteeing freedom and the protection of human rights.

The aim of the Union of European Federalists is therefore to bring together citizens who desire to work for the federal unity of Europe, to act as a catalyst of democratic forces in Europe and to stimulate public debate on the political content of the 'European project'.

Members of our organisation come from all over Europe and are of all age groups and backgrounds. They all share a common concern about the future of Europe and of the European Union.

Not being affiliated to any political party, UEF is an autonomous political movement. It cooperates with and seeks to influence European, national and local institutions, parties and associations. Among its supporters are decision -makers from a wide political spectrum, which allows the UEF to influence daily politics of the European Union more effectively. UEF cooperates with the Young European Federalists (JEF), the European Movement, the World Federalist Movement and other pro-European organisations, which share similar concern about the future of Europe.
The organisation's fields of interests are:
  • European
  • global

Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

The Presidents of UEF, EMI and JEF petitioned the European Parliament in February 2012, after the agreement reached by the heads of government of 25 member states on a new fiscal treaty. This petition asks the European Parliament to use its new Lisbon treaty powers to initiate a further revision of the European Union treaties with the objective of creating a full fiscal union with a reformed financial system.

On 12 May 2012, members from UEF European Secretariat, UEF Belgium, UEF Group Europe and Europa-Union Deutschland in Brussels, JEF-Europe, as well as European Movement Belgium gathered at the esplanade next to the European Parliament in Brussels to celebrate Europe Day 2012 and raise the profile of the European Federalists. The UEF actively promoted the “Federal Union Now” campaign and distributed flyers with quotes from well-known politicians showing their support in creation of a federal union.

On the day preceding the summit held on 13-14 December 2012, the Union of European Federalists (UEF) and the Young European Federalists (JEF) carried out a campaign-day across Europe with the common slogan “12.12.12: TIME TO DECIDE, TIME FOR A EUROPEAN FEDERATION!”. Numerous actions were organised.
