THE UNION OF EUROPEAN FEDERALISTS (UEF) is a pan-European political organisation dedicated to the promotion of European political unity.

Throughout the past 70 years we have been a leading voice in the promotion of European unity and an early campaigner for key milestones in the development of the European Communities and then the European Union.
