European Free Alliance

in the European Parliament

The European Free Alliance (EFA) Group in the European Parliament brings together MEPs who advance the cause of Europe's stateless nations, regions and disadvantaged minorities. We support a Europe of the peoples, and defend cultural and linguistic diversity in the EU. EFA MEPs are members of the Greens/European Free Alliance Group, forming a common parliamentary group with Europe’s Greens since 1999.

BUILDING A EUROPE OF ALL PEOPLES

We want a diverse Europe.
A Union that respects minorities, individuals, stateless nations and their right to self-determination. Our campaign aims at putting multilevel governance on the EU agenda.
