At this event, the CVCE will officially present its research corpus entitled ‘A rereading of the Werner Report of 8 October 1970 in the light of the Pierre Werner family archives'.

This presentation will be followed by lectures given by Jean-Claude Trichet, Honorary Governor of the Banque de France and former President of the European Central Bank, and Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime Minister of Luxembourg and outgoing President of the Eurogroup, on the crisis facing Economic and Monetary Union and possible future scenarios.
