Russian Culture in Luxembourg: „Ich kenne diese Bestien persönlich“

Russian Culture in Luxembourg: „Ich kenne diese Bestien persönlich“

Er hat drei Kinder, er lebt zwischen drei Ländern und er setzt eine Familien- geschichte von Philosophen, Schriftstellern und Denkern fort. Er schreibt, so- lange es noch dunkel ist, er malt, wenn es hell wird. Maxim Kantor lebt in ei- nem natürlichen Rhythmus eines kreativ Schaffenden, der keinen Unterschied zwischen den Ausdrucksformen macht, solange er etwas zu sagen hat. Heute spricht er über die Bestialität der Menschheit.

Farewell to princess narratives

Farewell to princess narratives

Alongside contemporary dance, classical ballet is a permanent fixture on the cultural scene in Luxembourg. There are good, enthusiastic dancers, a large, demanding audience, and yet the conditions in our country are anything but ideal for an art form that embodies in motivation and expression the origin and purity of dance par excellence. We took a look around and asked around in the Luxembourg ballet halls and among the actors of the local ballet scene.

Reconciliation over the Graves? or the German-Russian Reconciliation of Sologubovka

Reconciliation over the Graves? or the German-Russian Reconciliation of Sologubovka

“Reconciliation over the graves” is the official slogan of the Volksbund, a non-government organization based in Kassel, in central Germany. The Volksbund builds resting places for German war dead, and commemorates and acts in educational youth work toward understanding and harmonization after World War II. This essay uses and follows the definition of reconciliation as intended in the meaning of the Volksbund’s activities in Russia. The idea of this slogan and the purpose of this term will be explained.

Pierre Werner, A visionary European and Consensus Builder

Pierre Werner, A visionary European and Consensus Builder

As prime minister and finance minister of Luxembourg over 30 years, Pierre Werner played a major role in the building of a united Europe. This Christian Democratic intellectual and committed federalist gained strong reputation as a consensus-builder between larger powers (Germany and France) and between diametrically opposed positions (‘economists’ and ‘monetarists’), as well as for his ideas on monetary integration. From early 1950s, Werner advocates a European monetary system based on a currency unit and on a clearing house for central banks.

La construction européenne dans les années 1970: Pierre Werner et le couple franco-allemand.

La construction européenne dans les années 1970: Pierre Werner et le couple franco-allemand.

Quel regard jettent les autres Etats européens sur 50 ans de coopération franco-allemande (traité de l'Elysée de 1963) ? Ne sont-ils pas les mieux placés pour jauger de l'intensité de leurs relations, de leurs dysfonctionnements, de leurs apports aux relations interétatiques et de la construction européenne ? Les autres Etats sont un excellent miroir pour la relation franco-allemande et nous apprennent autant sur la coopération entre les deux riverains du Rhin qu'une investigation centrée sur le seul tandem franco-allemand.

Une vie pour l'idéal européen

Une vie pour l'idéal européen

Pierre Werner (29 décembre 1913 – 24 juin 2002) fut une personnalité aux multiples talents qui a traversé le XXe siècle. Ministre d’État, Premier Ministre et ministre des Finances pendant de longues dé¬cennies, cet intellectuel chrétien et démocrate résolu fut l’un des rares hommes d’État à avoir pris part à l’unification européenne depuis l’après-guerre jusqu’au milieu des années 1980. Il fait de l’intégration européenne l’axe central de la politique luxembourgeoise. Sur le plan intérieur, il joue un rôle majeur dans la modernisation de la société.

A new reading of primary sources via the digital analysis of social networks. ‘The Werner Committee and the debates on European economic and monetary integration’

This pilot project was carried out in connection with the CVCE’s strategy of combining humanities and social sciences research with digital tools and publishing the results via its digital research infrastructure on European integration, CVCE.eu. Methods borrowed from social network analysis and qualitative data analysis were applied to a specific section of the digital publication on the 1970 Werner Report, a publication which was compiled on the basis of the ‘traditional’ exploration and interpretation of a vast number of previously unpublished primary sources. 2
