The European Referendum Campaign was created in 2002 and ran until 2004. Click on the postcard (above) from 2003 to see our approach. One of the biggest successes was that through the ERC activists, the Dutch people were enabled to have their say on the EU Constitution.
The current ERC is tied to its predecessor. Read more about the history of the ERC!
Independent cross-party network
The European Referendum Campaign (ERC) is an independent, Europe-wide, cross party network of NGOs and individuals which brings together campaigners to fight for democratic development within the European Union.
Different views - one focus
The supporters of the ERC represent different political convictions and many views on the future of Europe. Our supporters vary from those in favour of adopting the EU Reform Treaty and those who are against it. However they are all united in the belief that you cannot build Europe without the consent of the people - and therefore we need referendums on the new treaty.
