UEF IN THE PRESS | Taking Control of Our Collective Destiny through European Federalism

News & Comment
France, UEF, UEF Sections

A well renowned French national newspaper, Libération, has published an Op-Ed written by members of UEF France's Scientific Council.

The article is initiated by the Union of European Federalists - France (UEF France) and its Scientific Council, intellectuals and academics emphasize the need to implement effective European federalism at the European level.

This is, as said the EB member Francois Leray, "a very concrete step to make federalism become an object of public debate in France, and a demonstration that a strategic communication approach through, for instance, a scientific council, can deliver".

The signatories of the article are:

  • Céline Spector, Professor of Philosophy at Sorbonne University
  • Robert Belot, Professor of History at the University of Saint-Étienne
  • Yann Moulier-Boutang, Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Technology of Compiègne
