During the general meeting individual members AEDH discussed the current state of the European Union, focusing on the deplorable situation regarding human rights. The result of this discussion was the creation opinion AEDH expressing concern with the policies of national governments that resort to alleged national interests in an attempt to avoid resolving global crises.
