Sovereign again
through Europe

23-25 NOVEMBER 2018 | VIENNA


Dear Friends,
The XXVI Congress of the Union of European Federalists will take place in Vienna from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 November 2018.
This Congress will be the occasion to discuss the European Federalists' strategy, campaign and policy proposals for the many challenges Europe is facing today: the completion of the Monetary Union, the development of the EU's social dimension, the reinforcement of the EU defense capabilities and the prospects for further political integration in view of the upcoming 2019 European elections. Most importantly, the Congress will be the occasion to review the shape and the way of working and financing of our organisation in a very difficult financial and organisational moment. Last but not least, the Congress is expected to elect a new President.
We trust the Congress will be an occasion for the mobilisation of all of our sections from across Europe so we invite you to spread the invitation broadly among your sections and members.

Registration for the Congress is now open.
