Framework for action

Everyone who committed to acting, in one way or another, at the CHE is required to know and respect the CHE’s framework of action, which is based on:

  • the principles of representative, participatory and deliberative democracy, in accordance with the principle of the rule of law.
  • the values and principles declared by the European Convention on Human Rights
  • the indivisible and universal values of human dignity, freedom, equality and solidarity (European Charter of Fundamental Rights, and in particular Article 21 of non-discrimination on grounds of nationality and on grounds of sex, race, colour, ethnic or social origin, genetic characteristics, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, association with a national minority, property, birth, disability, age or sexual orientation).

CHE also wants to reinforce the theme of Europe's cultural and linguistic diversity and it wants to stigmatise the drift of the European institutions towards "all-in-English".

CHE will thus oppose any lobbying action against the general interest by all its means and in particular by the organization of specific actions. Thus, the people who undertake to act within CHE oppose any lobbying action invoking totalitarian and/or theocratic conceptions because the types of regimes that these conceptions carry can be in contradiction with the conception of the "democratic society".
