The Union of European Federalists (UEF) is a non-governmental and supranational organisation dedicated to the promotion of a democratic and federal Europe.
It consists of 19 constituent organisations and it has been active at the European, national and local levels for more than 50 years.
It was founded 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 - act as a catalyst of democratic forces in Europe - 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.
