Europe for Peace believes that the European Union has played a much greater role in forging a peaceful Western Europe than is widely understood

  • Our campaign promotes a wider appreciation of how the EU has created mechanisms that prevent conflicts before they begin
  • We highlight the dangers to peace and stability that a disintegrating EU would present
  • We argue that urgent crises of migration, refugees and increasing terrorism on European soil can only be tackled with shared responsibility and cooperation
  • Many of the problems of the EU are down to its neoliberal 'austerity' agenda, its pro-NATO alignment, and its democratic deficit - Europe for Peace stresses the urgent need for reform, while acknowledging that this cannot be done without a seat at the table
