FOUNDATIONS OF LAW

2011-12-29

The last chance to resolve the Euro-crisis, according to Le Monde, was the European Council/Euro Summit of 26 October 2011. Despite the announcement that the 17 Euro heads of state and government agreed on a comprehensive package of measures, the outcome was much less than necessary for resolving the crisis. The text of the Summit Statement will appear on the website in the list of European Council Conclusions. In the Epilogue to "European Unification Into the Twenty-First Century" (to be published in December 2011) I shall briefly comment on the Statement.

Attached to this item is the English translation of the address of Pope Benedict XVI to the German Bundestag in Berlin on 22 September 2011 on the Foundations of Law. The address  is most important. In its exceptional clarity, it is worth reading!

Neither Justice nor Order

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

This fifth and final volume offers a critical assessment of the state of the law of nations. In the twenty first century the world needs true global law anchored in the dignity of the human person rather than weak international law built on the interests of major sovereign states.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?
