JEF Netherlands is the Dutch branch of the pan-European youth organisation: “Young European Federalists” (Jonge Europese Federalisten, JEF). JEF is a supranational, politically pluralist youth organisation with approximately 30,000 members in over 30 European countries. JEF’s goal is the creation of a democratic European federation as a guarantee for peace and a more free, just and democratic society. JEF fosters European citizenship, works for the widening and deepening of the EU and aims at bringing Europe closer to the citizens. Our ideas are spread through international activities and youth exchanges, publications, public actions and co-operation with other youth organisations.
