The factors taken into consideration were the overall activity of the MEP, the contribution to the interests of his/her own country, as well as his/her dedication to the establishment of peace, democracy, understanding and cooperation in Europe.

The European League is a non-profit making private organisation with the purpose of promoting the ideals of the EU. It is led by an international Committee of men of science and of letters and is stationed in Geneva.
