The European Movement is an international organisation open to all political, economic, social and cultural trends in civil society. Its objective is to contribute to the establishment of a united, federal Europe founded on the principles of peace, democracy, liberty, solidarity, and respect for basic human rights.
It seeks to provide a structure to encourage and facilitate the active participation of citizens and civil society organisations in the development of a united Europe. Its national councils and associated member organisations work towards bringing together representatives from European associations, political parties, enterprises and trade unions.
Born over half a century ago, the European Movement has played a crucial role in the construction of Europe and the organisation focusses its attention on influencing political, social and cultural arenas within the framework of European Civil Society.
