Adopted by AER EB 16 March 2017
AER General Assembly 31 May 2017
At the bureau meeting in Vienna, on 24 November 2016, members agreed on the direction of AER for the next years, summarised in a nutshell by the notion of “a strong Europe”. This will be the overarching priority for AER’s work. The notion of strength covers a wide range of issues, including strength in unity: political and economic cohesion to strengthen the position of Europe in the world. A strong Europe will act as a leader in various domains including social inclusion, the environment, innovation but can also respond to common challenges such as youth unemployment, migration and climate change.
