About the Political Priorities
AER Political Priorities are developed by the Bureau, which is in charge of providing the priority areas for its mandate and general orientations for the work of the organisation.
Every 5 years, at the Autumn Bureau Meeting, Bureau Members will set out the AER Political Priorities, outlining the critical issues AER will need to prioritize to achieve its mission.
By establishing longer-term priorities, AER will be provided by a common vision and focus, with agreed-upon priorities, for a clear direction and longer-term drive of operational priorities.
