The Spinelli Group statement on the Sibiu summit
The informal meeting of EU leaders at Sibiu on 9 May is called to reflect on the impact of the regrettable departure of the UK from membership of the Union.

The Spinelli Group and UEF are organising a series of events in European national capitals in order to meet citizens and national policy makers and make advance the debate on federal solutions to the challenges Europe is facing. The next national event of the Spinelli Group will take place in Vienna on 23 November, in cooperation with the Europäische Föderalistischen Bewegung in Österreich.
In next year’s European election, many politicians will preach about the need to “reform” the European Union but few will know what they are talking about. Two who do know are Viktor Orban and Emmanuel Macron, writes Andrew Duff.

Sofia-Declaration of The Spinelli Group and the UEF Sofia, 22 February 2018 Faced with euroscepticism and even resurgent nationalism, unification of Europe is the greatest duty of our generation. Globalisation, the emergence of continent powers, the rise of protectionism outside Europe, global warming, migration and new security threats leave European states short of means to find suitable...
