European Movement Germany
The European Movement Germany is Germany’s largest civil society network for Europe. It currently unites 249 interest groups from all sections of society: trade and professional associations, trade unions, educational providers, scientific institutions, foundations, political parties and businesses.
Since 1949, EM Germany’s aim has been to promote European integration in Germany and Europe. To this end, it supports and shapes the Europeanisation of structures and actors by providing information and a space for networking. As a quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation of the German Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt), European Movement Germany initiates and organises European political dialogue between politics and civil society, and in providing commentary brings out the main points concerning Europe.
