Federal Alliance of European Federalists

What Europe needs

The EU has three options: 

  • Back to the Westphalian nation-state
  • Keeping the EU as it is now: intergovernmental administration based on a treaty
  • Establishing the United States of Europe, based on a federal constitution. That's what Europe needs.

All you want to know about FAEF

What are we?

FAEF is an organization that aims to combine the forces of the various movements for establishing a federal Europe.

Who are we?

We are an organization in preparation. The initiators now operate as Promoting Committee.

What is our goal?

We want a federal Europe through Federating the Federalists on the one hand and Educating the Federalists on the other.

What are our values?

We want to protect values such as sovereignty, security, happiness and justice.

Federating the federalists

What is the problem?

There are various movements that are striving for a federal Europe. Each movement is pursuing that goal in its own way. Whether politically motivated or not. However, each movement operating individually, so without the backing of a federal system, lacks organizational strength. 

What is the solution?

Combining the forces of the individual movements must produce the necessary perseverance power. The sovereignty of each individual movement is respected. This can only be done in one way, namely by creating a federation.  

What is our method?

By reaching out to all federal movements, offering them the membership of the Federal Alliance of European Federalists. 

Educating the federalists

What is the problem?

Many citizens have no idea what federalism means. Unknown makes unloved.  As long as that is not resolved, there is a lack of support for achieving a federal Europe.

What is the solution?

We have developed an educational program (Bachelor/Master) to introduce citizens to the phenomenon of federalism in an accessible way.

What is our method?

We want to cover the whole of Europe. Therefore we want to train people who can support citizens by following an educational program.
