Taxation in Benelux countries

Taxation in Benelux countries

The aim of this paper is to perform a comparative historical analysis of the development and specific characteristics of taxation in Luxembourg, as developed in a multidimensional context – national (Luxembourg), regional (relations with traditional partners – Belgium and the Netherlands but also Germany and France), European (ECSC, EEC and EU) and international (OECD, GATT/WTO) – in the second half of the 20th century. The two aspects of taxation will be addressed: direct taxation (a prerogative of states) and indirect taxation (subject to international regulation).

The Werner Report: Principles, Values and Challenges for a Europe Built through Currency

The Werner Report: Principles, Values and Challenges for a Europe Built through Currency

The work of the Werner Committee, which in October 1970 resulted in a plan for an economic and monetary union (the Werner Report), was characterised by political and doctrinal differences between ‘economists’ and ‘monetarists’. At issue was the question of whether monetary integration was the means or the ultimate goal of economic integration. On one side, there were the ‘monetarists‘ (whose standard-bearers were the countries with weak currencies – France, Belgium and, to a certain extent, Italy), who argued for ‘institutions‘.

Pierre Werner and Luxembourg: A vision for Europe

Pierre Werner and Luxembourg: A vision for Europe

Pierre Werner was one of the rare politicians to be associated with all
the major milestones in the building of a united Europe, from the 1950
Schuman Plan to the Fontainebleau European Council in 1984.
He placed the European integration process at the centre of

L'histoire de l'Europe au XXe siècle à travers les caricatures comme source?

L'histoire de l'Europe au XXe siècle à travers les caricatures comme source?

Ce séminaire s'interroge sur le rôle de la caricature comme source pour raconter l'histoire de l'Europe au XXe siècle. Il s'agit d'analyser les procédés de la caricature et le rôle qu’elle a joué dans l'évolution des représentations de l'Europe à travers l'histoire. La caricature devient ainsi une source historique et un objet de recherche à part entière, qui vient compléter avec son message visuel, son ton décalé et humoristique les sources écrites ou orales.
