Cartoon by Behrendt on the Treaty of Amsterdam (1997)

‘Buoyed up by Amsterdam.’ In 1997, cartoonist Fritz Behrendt takes an ironic look at the results of the Treaty of Amsterdam, deemed to be disappointing, and hopes that the introduction of the euro will provide the necessary impetus for European leaders to revive more ambitious projects. (From left to right: Tony Blair, British Prime Minister; Wim Kok, Netherlands Prime Minister; Jacques Santer, President of the European Commission; Helmut Kohl, German Chancellor; Lionel Jospin, French Prime Minister; and Jacques Chirac, French President.)
