The Congress of the European Movement International (EMI) “Beyond Nations: Empowering European Citizens’ Sovereignty” took place on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 November, in Rome.

ALDA, represented by its President, Oriano Otocan, and the Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida, attended the meeting together with 38 national sections of EMI and 37 European associations with more than 130 delegates.

The event was the occasion to elect a new Board and agree on future political commitments.

ALDA supported the candidacy of Ugo Ferruta (AIACE) and Frédéric Vallier (CEMR), who were elected as new Vice Presidents, as well as of Claudia Muttin, elected in the Board of EMI.

Going forwards, the Movement will focus on 3 key areas. These are: More Democracy, Citizens’ Rights and Freedom; Jobs, Competitiveness and Sustainable Growth; and Europe in the World.

Diogo Pinto, Secretary General, European Movement International, said: “Those who took part in the EMI Federal Assembly in Rome – participants and guests alike – witnessed the vitality of our old Movement. With ever more civil society organisations choosing to join the network, a rejuvenated Board and clear policy commitments, we are ready to show the way forward in re-launching the European project.

We congratulate the EMI and its Board, and look forward to further working together!
