Come join us at Friends of JEF gathering 2017 in Rome

Please join us for our next gathering of former JEFers in Rome! On the occasion of the federalist celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome the Friends of JEF (FoJ) will meet to discuss some politics, see what JEF is doing and catch up with old friends!

When: weekend 25 March 2017 (with our main activites on Saturday afternoon & evening and the FoJ assembly at noon on Sunday)

Where: Rome (all meetings around the Pantheon area)

What next: spread the word with your JEF friends and plan your trip to Rome! Register (below) and arrange your travels. We expect that accomodation will be scarce due to the federalist event, the JEF FC and a special European Council taking place. Feel free to share our communications and updates for the event from our Twitter and Facebook channels.

Programme: The programme is available here – note some changes to times and locations!. Please note that our FoJ activities are taking place on Saturday afternoon. You are more than welcome to join the other federalist activities and celebrations with the convention conference and the demonstration beforehands. However, FoJ is not involved in their organisation.

Register here! (Only registrations through this google form are ‘official’)

For any questions contact Jan, Till and Paolo or anyone else from the Friends of JEF bureau. Information on our general assembly on the 26th March 2017 in Rome will be posted on this website soon.

Website relaunch

Workshop RelaunchThanks to Jon we have relaunched the Friends of JEF website this weekend. Great new and simple design. Wordpress-based. Also, we now have a proper mailing system. As always, feedback is much welcome. Please let us know, if you miss any information or there are any bugs.

With the mailing system we may send a few more occasional emails but this should never spam your inboxes.

Where we would like to ask for your support is:
– sign up with your current email address.
– make sure that your JEF friends from the days have also signed up. You can now use this form here on this website to add your/their contact details.
– if you have any nice pictures or stories from your time, please send them over to the board and we are happy to add them to the photo gallery.

Congratulations to new JEF team


At its European Congress in Zurich on 24 October 2015 JEF-Europe adopted its policy for the coming two years and elected a new Bureau. Our president Jan had the chance to address the Congress and invite retiring JEFers to join the Friends of JEF.

For the next two years Christopher Gl├╝ck and his team are now in chance and we wish them a strong federalist hand in their fight for a united Europe.

A big round of appreciation also goes to our board member Pauline Gessant for her dedicated four years as JEF president and the great contribution she and her team have made to the organisation.

More information on the Congress can be found on the JEF website.
