The Union of European Federalists (UEF) was founded in 1946 with the aim to achieve the European Federation as a first step towards world federalism; its members were among the founders of the World Federalist Movement in 1947. Encouraged by the establishment of the European Union, members have begun to advocate for federalism in other regions.
The UEF is present in more than 20 European countries and has been active at the European, national and local levels for more than 50 years, organizing campaigns, meetings, seminars and conferences throughout the continent.
Towards a Constitution for Europe
A European Constitution is an important starting point toward the goal of a United Federal Europe. Today UEF campaigns for the ratification and quick implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, convinced that its reforms will help the democratic improvement in the functioning of the European Union.
Campaigning for a European Government
The UEF also works in the promotion the creation of a European executive body, a European Government, which should be legitimized by the will of the people in the European Parliament elections. UEF leads the campaign "Who is Your Candidate?" asking the European political parties to nominate their candidate for President of the European Commission. The party winning the majority in the next European Parliament elections should be able to appoint the President of the European Executive that should be the European Commission.
