20 February 2016, the student organisation of the European Peoples Party (EPP) passed a resolution calling for the right to self-determination in occupied Western Sahara.
The resolution was adopted with a vast majority on EDS' annual winter congress in Berlin. EDS is the biggest political student organisation in Europe.
The text urges the European Commission, the European Parliament and Member States "to call upon the Moroccan government to honour its commitment in the 1991 ceasefire agreement to respect the Sahrawi people's legitimate right to self-determination and independence".
The resolution further underlines that "European Democrat Students truly believe that the Sahrawi people have the right to self-determination and to be given the opportunity to decide on this through a referendum".
