Cambridge University European Society

The Cambridge University European Society is a pro-European organisation and the Cambridge branch of the Young European Movement UK. We are a platform for those of all European nations – inside and outside the EU – and those interested in all things continental.

CUEUS is run by students and is open to all at Cambridge University of any political stance, whether for or against Europe. We offer a range of events, from socials and formals to debates and discussions, aiming to provide a warm and enjoyable experience for our members whilst encouraging people to consider and develop their opinions of Europe.

Membership of the Society brings automatic membership of the Young European Movement and the Young European Federalists, detailed below. In short, joining CUEUS means discovering a range of European events and Cambridge students during the term, and improving skills, meeting new Europeans, and travelling Europe during the vacations!

Where does CUEUS fit in and what does this mean for you?

Young European Momement

Visit the website of YEM UK

YEM is the main pro-European organisation for people aged 35 and under in the UK. It was created by young people for young people of all political walks and beliefs who share a common interest in Europe and the European Union. Its goal, much like CUEUS, is to foster debate and discussion on European themes among the generation who will shape the future of the UK and of the continent as a whole.

Young European Federalists

Explore JEF Europe online

JEF (Jeunes Européens Fédéralistes) is a supranational, politically pluralist youth NGO with about 30,000 members in over 30 countries. Its goal is the creation of a democratic European federation as a crucial ingredient for peace, a guarantee for a more free, just and democratic society, and a first step towards a world federation.

JEF promotes true European Citizenship, works for the widening and deepening of the EU and strives for a more just and integrated society on the European continent. It is independent from all political parties and ideologies and pursues its objectives autonomously. Nevertheless, the organisation can, of course, participate in the exchange of opinions and experiences with political movements, public institutions, associations and the general public.

JEF aims to bring Europe closer to the Citizens and the Citizens closer to Europe. To this end, the organisation aspires to develop a better understanding of European Federalism, advances the implementation of the federalist ideals and concentrates its action on the achievement of international democracy and efficient, democratic and transparent decision-making through respect for federal principles in Europe and beyond.
