Westcoast German News - - News -

On April 9th, 2013, to cel­e­brate the 50th an­niver­sary of the El­y­see Treaty be­tween France and Ger­many, the In­sti­tute for Euro­pean Stud­ies at the Univer­sity of Bri­tish Columbia, in part­ner­ship with the Consulat gen­er­als of France and Ger­many in Van­cou­ver, or­ga­nized an in­ter­na­tional sym­po­sium. For more than half a cen­tury, the French-Ger­man part­ner­ship, as ma­te­ri­al­ized by the El­y­see Treaty and its un­prece­dented frame­work for bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion be­tween for­mer enemy coun­tries, has been at the core of the Euro­pean in­te­gra­tion project, re­cently hon­ored with the No­bel Peace Prize. This sym­po­sium brought to­gether schol­ars who an­a­lyzed/dis­cussed the past, present and fu­ture of Euro­pean in­te­gra­tion & the cru­cial role of the Ger­man-French re­la­tions in it.

Spe­cial guest above: MLA Harald Leibrecht, Co­or­di­na­tor of the Transat­lantic Re­la­tions of the Gov­ern­ment of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Ger­many.
