Pro-Europeanism, sometimes called European Unionism,[1][2] is a political position that favours European integration and membership of the European Union (EU).[3]

Political position

Pro-Europeans are mostly classified as "centrist" (Renew Europe) in the context of European politics, including "centre-right" moderate conservatives (ex. EPP Group) and "centre-left" social democrats (ex. S&D and Greens/EFA). Pro-Europeanism is ideologically closely related to the Europe and Global liberal movement.[4][5][6][7][8]
