Alliance of European Republican Movements
Republic is a founding member of the Alliance of European Republican Movements (AERM).
The AERM was established at a meeting in Stockholm in June 2010.
AERM is committed to creating a network of cross-party republican movements in all the countries in Europe that continue to have a monarch as their head of state.
Member organisations come from Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Full details can be found on the AERM website, www.aerm.org.
The AERM is an active alliance, giving member organisations the opportunity to share experiences and expertise, to discuss strategies and to learn from each other. The AERM's coordinating committee meets quarterly via online conferencing.
An AERM Convention is held each year:
Stockholm - 2010
London - 2011
Copenhagen - 2012
Brussels - 2013
Oslo - 2014
Amsterdam - 2015
Madrid - 2016
Västerås - 2017
London - 2018
AERM is committed to the ideals of democracy and equality in our national constitutions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Member organisations are each primarily working towards the replacement of their respective constitutional monarchies with republics based on the principles of democracy, accountability, transparency and merit.
AERM provides a framework for the member organisations to share information, resources and ideas to bring about their common goal. Reflecting their distinctive political and constitutional circumstances, each of the organisations will retain their autonomous national campaigns.
Friendship: AERM recognises that all countries have ongoing political, social, economic and cultural histories that bind each country to the other. These formal ties are reinforced by personal and family friendships between the countries.
Equality: Each member organisation of AERM is an equal member regardless of its size or history.
Co-operation: AERM is a commitment to discussion and mutual assistance. It is a shared willingness to talk through any differences and disagreements in order to continue the working relationship and further the aims of the agreement.
Democracy: Each member organisation will maintain a commitment to openness and democracy within their internal structures and procedures and in all matters concerning the Agreement.
