What is ECPF?
The European Christian Political Foundation (ECPF) is an association that acts as the political foundation for the European Christian Political Movement (ECPM). The ECPF supports and underpins the ECPM especially in terms of political content by European co-operation and the introduction of analysis, ideas and policy options.
The ECPF shares the basic program and Christian values of the ECPM. As association the ECPF welcomes thinktanks, NGO’s and individual politicians as members if they agree with these values and the Christian-democrat principles as expressed in the basic program.
The ECPF has three main goals among which its activities will be organized:
- Connecting Christian inspired think-tanks and NGOs and starting a process of exchange of knowledge and experience. The ECPF website will become a European portal to many organizations, virtual libraries and information on many fields of policy. Also a database will be developed that will help parties, politicians and other organizations in their work.
- Informing parties and politicians at the national level on important European policy developments that will enable them to react early and efficiently on ideas coming from the EU institutions. This work will be accompanied by actual policy comments.
- Creating new ideas and approaches to the challenges in a globalised world and a global economy. The ECPF supports in-depth study projects that highlight and work from Christian inspiration. The ECPF wants to formulate attractive alternatives for the dominant secular dogmas in culture and economics.
