XXVI UEF European Congress
The UEF XXVI European 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, last but not least, 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 organisation moment. Last but not least, the Congress is a expected to elect a new President of the organisation.
