Pro-Europeanism is a term broadly used for any political orientation which favours co-operation among European nations. More specifically, when used in the context of European integration and the European Union, it refers to a political position which views them both favourably.

As such, it is the opposite of "Euroscepticism", which refers to political attitudes sceptical of – or opposed to – European integration. (it should not be confused with the more generic term "Anti-Europeanism" which may refer to attitudes to transatlantic relations within the US foreign policy).
