Federal Union believes that democracy and the rule of law should apply between states as well as within them. Federal Union is also the British section of the Union of European Federalists and of the World Federalist Movement.

Its description of federalism is that it divides political power between levels of government to achieve the best combination of democracy and effectiveness. Federalism is not the bureaucratic centralisation of popular myth.
