EUROPEANS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD serve the more than fourteen million European nationals living in Europe in another country than their own and at least 70 million of Europeans living elsewhere in the world. One of the statutory aims of Europeans Throughout the World is to act as a Spokesman for the European expatriates towards all authorities and to be their defender.

Its objectives in summary are to:

- Promote international collaboration between the associations of nationals residing abroad and foster development of such associations.
- Advance the study and knowledge in the widest sense of the rights and duties of the Europeans abroad and to act towards all authorities as their spokesman and defender.
- Perform studies and joint activities in the spirit of the European Union, and disseminate information.
- Ensure the best possible information to European expats about Europeaninitiatives and activities of special interest to expats

From the Statutes:

The total budget comes from membership subscriptions and covers the basic running and office expenses, with no salaries as all staff are voluntary unpaid officers.

From time to time we organise projects or conferences, on condition that we are successful in obtaining grants from member organisations, national or EU authorities. In these cases the extra budget obtained is spent entirely on the projects concerned. In 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 there was no such project.

In January 2015 we organised a conference together with the Latvian EU presidency and the EESC.
