EAEA joins the European Movement International

As of April 2016, EAEA is a member of the European Movement International (EMI), a network of organisations that has mobilises citizens and advocates for a democratic, federal and enlarged union. It contributes to the establishment of a united, federal Europe founded on the principles of peace, democracy, liberty, solidarity, and respect for basic human rights.

“Because of what’s happening right now in Europe, we want to be part of the bigger picture. The future of adult education is also linked to the future of Europe. We believe that the connection between networks is hugely important,” says EAEA President Per Paludan Hansen.

Born in 1948, the EMI has played a crucial role in the construction of Europe and the organisation’s attention centres on influencing political, social and cultural arenas within the framework of the European Civil Society.

Studies, information and lobbying

The EMI operates as a study and information group through the many projects and activities undertaken, and has been at the forefront in helping large segments of the public take part in the dissemination of information on European affairs and activities.

It also operates as a pressure group through the influence exerted by its members at all levels in each sector of activity. The European Parliament, Commission, national parliaments, authorities and governments, businesses, industry associations, NGOs and the many associations which make up the civil society in Europe have been influenced through the EMI’network of contacts.

Influence is exerted at the EU level via the EMI and its individual member organisations and at the level of member countries via national councils, covering a geographical area that extends across the continent.
