MAY 9, 1950-2020
- Defining and commemorating the legacy of Robert Schuman, 70 years after the declaration that forged today’s Europe, is more than necessary.
- From the EUROM we do it as a claim of the “idea of Europe”, a Europe full of challenges and crises, but also full of hope and opportunities that must not forget the collective nor the individual processes that shaped our free societies, our memories, and the democratic values of peace, solidarity and social justice.
- This special online issue aims to contribute, in a critical and constructive way, to the debate about our common and indeed diverse past.
The Schuman Declaration story includes an article by the professor Sylvain Schirmann, lecturer at the University of Strasbourg, a contribution by Philippe Le Guen, director of the Jean Monnet Association, and an interactive timeline that highlights the most relevant facts of Robert Schuman’s life chronology.
