Transcript of AEGEE's Structure
AEGEE's Structure looks complex at first sight, but once you get involved, you will see that it's actually quite easy to understand. Don't despair and ask one of the oldies around you ;).
Everything starts at the local level, with the work the individual members and the local boards do on a daily basis.
Here you can see the approx. 200
locals the AEGEE Network has
Individual students, young professionals or young people in general become members of AEGEE locals (e.g. AEGEE-Calgiari, AEGEE Budapest,...), who are member of the umbrella organisation, AEGEE-Europe.
The Summer University Coordination Team, Comité Directeur, and the Commissions are elected by the Agora (in red circles).
For more information about the Agora, check:
The Agora is the most important place of AEGEE, it's heart. Each local is represented with 3 delegates there. Every 6 months, the Network meets to elect, decide, and develop a new direction.
The Commissions supervise that everybody in AEGEE works according to the rules
and give support wherever needed.
The Audit Commission checks the finances of AEGEE-Europe and can, if needed, also check the finances of an AEGEE local.
The Juridical Commission makes sure that everything is going according to the
"laws" of AEGEE, that are written
in the CiA (Corpus
The Network Commission is the most important body for the locals. Their task is to support the locals, ensure communication between the
local and the European Level, and foster cooperation among the Network.
The Mediation Commission intervenes, when asked, in cases of conflict in the Network. They can work just as Mediators or, in more difficult cases, propose measures to take to the Agora.
The CD is the European Board of Directors. They live and work full time in Brussels
in the headquarters of AEGEE. Their
task is to represent, develop and administrate AEGEE.
The Comité Directeur is supported by and cooperates with a a lot of bodies that help them implement their work, but also help the locals whenever needed.

and heard there and that AEGEEans
are updated with the processes
that are going on there.
... support Policy Processes in AEGEE. Each of them has a specific topic they work on (e.g. Sustainability). On this topic, they consult with the Network and formulate Opinions, Position Papers and
Policy Papers of AEGEE, that are
then used externally.
Committees give support to the Network in specific (administrative) and make sure AEGEE can implement its work smoothly.
The Action Agenda Coordination Team supports the implementation of the Action Agenda and gives locals guidelines and best practices on
how to contribute to it.
The Corporate Relations Committee supports AEGEE-Europe with fundraising and the implementation of the
Study and Career Fair.
The Public Relations Committee supports the Network with PR, works in internal and external visibility, design,
and the implementation of the
Visual Identity of AEGEE.

we want to see...
The Working Groups are the other pillar of AEGEE's thematic work and the place for discussion in AEGEE. Other than Projects, they are not limited to a certain time frame,
