The Bureau is the primary political voice of AER. It engages in issues of a pan-European and global nature emanating from members and establishes the political base for AER’s advocacy work. It is the primary political voice of AER, meeting at least twice a year.
The meetings will be open to the public, inviting international, interregional, regional and municipal organisations to take part in the debate – contrary to the General Assembly, which often deals with internal organizational issues.
It consists of the members of the Executive Board and two representatives per State represented within the AER as well as a series of individuals (outgoing Presidents, Presidents of AER Programmes, Presidents of partner organisations and institutions, and representatives of regions hosting the AER offices) invited on a personal basis..
