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!

Footprints of the twentieth Century


Professor Frans A.M. Alting von Geusau presents the history of Western Cooperation around a central theme: the effort of realist idealists to replace power politics by closer cooperation between democracies.

De geest van Christus leeft in Europa


De eenwording van Europa na de Tweede Wereldoorlog is op beslissende wijze door de geest van Christus beïnvloed. Schuman en Solidarnosc hebben het aanzien van Europa geheel veranderd.
