TEAM gives organisations useful contacts and information.
The TEAM members and observers seek to expose problems with the EU Treaties and the operation of the EU institutions. We do this by promoting cooperation and exchange of information between Europe’s EU-critical movements.
TEAM raises awareness of the existence of a Europe-wide opposition to an undemocratic European future. Some of TEAM’s member organisations have seats in the European Parliament and provide information and support for TEAM from there.
The TEAM network does not intervene in the domestic politics of individual countries or in the internal affairs of its affiliated organisations. Neither does it seek to impose a common policy on its affiliates as regards EU-issues. It provides information and contacts at the request of its member and observer organisations in particular countries.
Under its Constitution TEAM organises two main meetings each year. The principal one is the Annual General Meeting in March, where TEAM policy is decided, new member and observer organisations are enrolled and the new TEAM Board is elected. Then a Council meeting is held to enable TEAM’s affiliates to come together between Annual Meetings to discuss EU developments.
The Board of TEAM organises the Annual Meeting and Council Meeting, in cooperation with local organisations in whatever countries they are held in. From time to time the TEAM Board and Secretary General issue briefing papers and critical information and documentation on EU affairs. These represent the views of their individual authors and do not commit TEAM’s affiliated organisations to any particular view or policy position.
