The Initiative of Communist and Workers' Parties (INITIATIVE) is a European anti-revisionist Marxist–Leninist political alliance. INITIATIVE has 29 member parties from all over Europe.[1] The Communist Party of Greece was the main founder of INITIATIVE.[2] The goal of INITIATIVE is to "contribute to the research and study of issues concerning Europe, particularly concerning the EU, the political line which is drawn up in its framework and affects the lives of the workers, as well as to assist the elaboration of joint positions of the parties and the coordination of their solidarity and their other activities".[3]
