The party was set up under Danish law on 7 November 2005 and founded as a European Party in Brussels on 8 November 2005. At a European level, EUD is a cohesive platform that is not concerned with right or left ideologies since it believes that such politics are best left under the democratic control of the citizens of member states and regions.


EUD believes in decision-making at the lowest possible levels, giving an effective voice to the citizens of the member states, regions and national minorities. It unites those who are critical of the EU for its undemocratic development and its ever-centralising political features.


EUD is opposed to the centralisation of EU power, especially the empowerment for the EU to self-empower, which it describes as a sad development in the history of democracy in Europe. EUD urges for the peoples’ scrutiny and control over EU institutional powers and actions, recalling what history teaches us of past undemocratic systems of government in Europe.


The operational aim of EUD is to act as an effective political platform and a campaigns organisation that is able to influence pan-European politics towards democratic development. It is also EUD's aim to have affiliated candidates elected in European elections on its political platform.


The following parties and movements are members of EUD:
