Other publications

The Robert Schuman Foundation, in partnership with a European university research network initiated in 2016 in Lille on the subject of "Parliament and the notion of time", is launching a series of reports which aim to give an account of "the impact of the current health crisis on the functioning of national Parliaments" in Europe.

In particular, the contributions questioned the impact of the health crisis on parliamentary procedure and the parliamentary control of the government.

For Europe

For Europe - First Edition -

For Europe

The Europe of today is the direct outcome of the "Schuman Declaration" of May 9, 1950. It follows the same methods and maintains the same purposes. One must read the sole work that the "Father of Europe"devoted to this venture, an unreachable dream that became a tangible reality, in order to understand his approach and the political stakes of this peaceful and determined construction of continental unity, heretofore unprecedented in history. In the very particular context of the era, to which he alludes, Robert Schuman evades none of the questions that one can legitimately pose regarding the European project: the nation, federalism, culture, and the roots of Europe. And under his quill, rather than confronting themselves, the states and the people of Europe combined themselves; a political and determined Europe, rich in its diversity but strong in its unity. This vision remains a necessity for the Europe of today, and a requirement in order to imagine its future.


France, NATO and European Union

Pascale Andreani

The ideas in this study expressed by the former Ambassador to France with NATO emerged before NATO's intervention in Libya. However they remain entirely topical, since they explain why France has returned to NATO's integrated military organisation and the consequences of this. Moreover, we might say that this article throws light on further issues raised by the Alliance's involvement in Libya. This is why, before we can even assess the developments and "strategic surprises" that have occurred over the last few years, it is useful to offer our readers an article which reviews the Alliance's relations with France and the European Union.
