During a speech in Paris in 1950, Robert Schuman, then French Minister for Foreign Affairs, explained
his idea of ​​a new form of political cooperation in Europe that would make any
war between European nations. His vision was to create a European institution that would put
jointly and would administer the production of coal and steel. A treaty creating such a body has
was signed in the year after the speech. Schuman's proposal is considered to be the
beginning of what is today the European Union.

 

In the particular context that we are experiencing this year with COVID-19, a united and strong Europe is more than ever necessary for every citizen.
