The European Parliamentary Association (APE) is a transpartisan political organisation. It brings together Members of the European Parliament belonging to different political groups and members of the diplomatic and consular corps of Strasbourg. It provides a unique place on the European scene where to foster an informal dialogue and create synergies among political actors carrying different perspectives but sharing the same desire to cooperate beyond political cleavages.

To do so, the APE organises every plenary session different exclusive events for MEPs and diplomats. In addition, its members can use for free the rooms of Villa Schutzenberger for any event linked to their activity.

Moreover, the European Parliamentary Association organises different kinds of events for students and other members of the civil society of Strasbourg, to communicate the activity of its members and, more in general, to give visibility to the work of the European Parliament and of other European institutions.
