The centenary of Pierre Werner’s birth on 29 December 2013 offered a timely opportunity to reflect on the personality, approach and achievements of this politician from Luxembourg who left his mark on the future of his country and on the European integration process.
To mark this event, the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE), in cooperation with its partners the Pierre Werner Foundation, the University of Luxembourg, Robert Triffin International and the European Commission Representation in Luxembourg, held an international conference entitled “Pierre Werner, a vision for Europe: his approach, action and legacy”. Some 30 renowned experts and researchers, together with major players in economic and monetary affairs, assembled at the Cultural Exchange Centre of the Abbaye de Neumünster on 27 and 28 November 2013 to analyse Pierre Werner’s European vision and demonstrate the relevance of his approach in light of the challenges facing us in the 21st century.
This conference served a twofold purpose. Firstly, it was part of the series of events held to mark Werner’s centenary. The CVCE was closely involved in this occasion, also organising a round table1 and a biographical documentary that shed light on the intellectual achievements, convictions and actions of Pierre Werner, an architect of a united Europe, as seen through accounts from individuals that knew him well.2
