The Prague Declaration

17 December 2013

The ECR Group is a centre-right political group in the European Parliament, founded in 2009 with a common cause to reform the EU on the basis of euro-realism, respecting the sovereignty of nations, and focusing on economic recovery, growth and competitiveness. Our founding parties adopted the Prague Declaration which sets out our Principles and Values.

The Prague Declaration

Conscious of the urgent need to reform the EU on the basis of Eurorealism, Openness, Accountability and Democracy, in a way that respects the sovereignty of our nations and concentrates on economic recovery, growth and competitiveness, the European Conservatives and Reformists Group shares the following principles:

  • Free enterprise, free and fair trade and competition, minimal regulation, lower taxation, and small government as the ultimate catalysts for individual freedom and personal and national prosperity.
  • Freedom of the individual, more personal responsibility and greater democratic accountability.
  • Sustainable, clean energy supply with an emphasis on energy security.
  • The importance of the family as the bedrock of society.
  • The sovereign integrity of the nation state, opposition to EU federalism and a renewed respect for true subsidiarity.
  • The overriding value of the transatlantic security relationship in a revitalised NATO, and support for young democracies across Europe.
  • Effectively controlled immigration and an end to abuse of asylum procedures.
  • Efficient and modern public services and sensitivity to the needs of both rural and urban communities.
  • An end to waste and excessive bureaucracy and a commitment to greater transparency and probity in the EU institutions and use of EU funds.
  • Respect and equitable treatment for all EU countries, new and old, large and small.
