Aims and Objectives

The fundamental aim of the Celtic League is to contribute, as an international organisation, to the struggles of the six Celtic nations to secure or win their political, cultural, social and economic freedom. This includes:

  • Fostering co-operation between Celtic peoples.
  • Developing the consciousness of the special relationship and solidarity between them.
  • Making our national struggles and achievements better known abroad.
  • Campaigning for a formal association of Celtic nations to take place once two or more of them have achieved self-government.
  • Advocating the use of the national resources of each of the Celtic countries for the benefit of all its people.

The Role of The Celtic League in Our National Struggles

On an internal level, the role of the Celtic League is secondary to that of the national organisations which work for the rebuilding of our respective nations as fully integrated communities. At an inter-Celtic level we should promote exchanges and facilitate acquaintance of people from different Celtic countries with one another to strengthen our solidarity. On the external level, we should let other peoples know that the Celts are determined to assert their nationhood and that they have original contributions to make to the achievement of more satisfactory relations between individuals and Nations. We are non sectarian.

Each Celtic nation is conditioned by a different history and so we must not expect uniformity of thought but insteadf allow diversity to express itself within the Celtic League. In this way, we may better recognise those areas of possible co-operation and eventually formulate a detailed common policy. With this we can work out which kind of relations between our communities will enable them to enjoy freedoms and liberties at both individual and community level.
