Completing Economic and Monetary Union: Challenges and Prospects

Completing Economic and Monetary Union: Challenges and Prospects

Such as introduced by the Maastricht Treaty (1992), Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and the single currenti (euro) (implemened in 1999) aimed at securing stability and prosperity for EU citizens. However, the international financial and economic crisis (2008) uncovered systematic flaws in EMU’s design (absence of a common economic, fiscal and social policy, no common budget, etc). To achieve convergence, the Member States should to make profound economic adjustments.

History as 'retrospective prediction'? On the limits of predicting the future by learning from the past

History as 'retrospective prediction'? On the limits of predicting the future by learning from the past

“If you don’t know about your past, you don’t know about your future” is probably one of the most repeated phrases in Sunday-speeches of politicians at official commemorations or historical anniversa- ries. Alas, the reality looks different. While history has a lot of lessons to offer, people don’t learn from it. This intervention will reflect on the reasons of this ignorance or oblivious of history and ask the question, whether the abundance of historical sources in the age of “big data of the past” will help to cure this

Robert Schuman et sa déclaration pour l’Europe (9 mai 1950): Histoire, actualité et perspectives

Robert Schuman et sa déclaration pour l’Europe (9 mai 1950): Histoire, actualité et perspectives

Le 9 mai 1950, Robert Schuman (1886-1963), ministre français des Affaires étrangères, propose la création de la Communauté européenne du charbon et de l'acier (CECA), jetant ainsi les bases d’une Europe unie, fondée sur la liberté, la démocratie et le partage. S’en suivent sept décennies durant lesquels le projet européen progresse de 6 à 27 membres et évolue au gré des succès et des crises, en apportant au continent la plus longue période de paix dans son histoire.

« Ni meubles, ni effets, ni aucunes rentes ». L’impact de la suppression des métiers dans un bourg rural : Virton (1795-1814)

« Ni meubles, ni effets, ni aucunes rentes ». L’impact de la suppression des métiers dans un bourg rural : Virton (1795-1814)

This article describes the process of abolishing the guilds in Virton, outlining the motivations and, above all, the modus operandi of the French authorities. It then looks at the reactions to the abolition of the guilds among some craftsmen, and presents the consequences of entrepreneurial freedom as a substitute for the corporate economic system.

Pourquoi les femmes ont quitté l'informatique et pourquoi ce n’est pas une fatalité…

Pourquoi les femmes ont quitté l'informatique et pourquoi ce n’est pas une fatalité…

Notre défi sera de mieux comprendre l'évolution historique qui, depuis les années 1950, a conduit à la désaffection progressive des femmes pour les études d'informatique. Cette tendance n'est pas sans conséquence sur les usages, les pratiques, les produits et applications numériques. Elle est manifeste dans les représentations, les métiers, les programmes ou encore les algorithmes. Qu’est-il arrivé aux « Computer Girls » enthousiastes des origines ?

L'animal médiatique

L'animal médiatique

L’animal est au cœur d’interrogations politiques, sociales, écologiques et ontologiques qui éclairent le passé de manière profondément contemporaine. Si une « question animale » a bien émergé à l’âge classique et aux Lumières, inspirant de nombreux travaux, traités et autres publications, les recherches académiques des dernières décennies ont cependant connu une évolution fondamentale dans le champ historique.

Das Lager Elsenborn im Versailler Vertrag

Das Lager Elsenborn im Versailler Vertrag

Am 28. Juni 1919 hatten die Siegermächte und die deutschen Bevollmächtigten im Spiegelsaal des Schlosses von Versailles den Friedensvertrag unterzeichnet. Das Ende des Ersten Weltkrieges wurde damit besiegelt und am 10. Januar 1920 trat der Versailler Vertrag in Kraft. Damit wurde Belgien um 1.050 km² größer, auch wenn die belgischen Ansprüche weitaus weiter – bis ins Rheinland – reichten. Weniger bekannt ist, dass das Militärlager Elsenborn bei diesen Verhandlungen eine nicht unwesentliche Rolle spielte.

Preserving memory, sharing history: Luxembourg and the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950

Preserving memory, sharing history: Luxembourg and the Schuman Declaration of 9 May 1950

The aim of the Study Morning is to explore the history of European integration from two angles: firstly looking at various key events in terms of their content, and secondly reflecting on how critical analysis can be used to shed more light on them. The idea is to begin by familiarising pupils in their final years at the European School (from a variety of specialisations including history, geography and political science) with the origins, content and consequences of the Declaration given by Robert Schuman on 9 May 1950 on the building of a united Europe.

Minett-Stories : A Transmedia Storytelling Project

Minett-Stories : A Transmedia Storytelling Project

The Minett is a region in southern Luxembourg that has been strongly influenced by its industrial past: by the mining of "minette" iron ore and by iron and steel production. Our virtual exhibition, Minett Stories, investigates the multiple – and sometimes contested – histories and identities of the region, as well as those of the people who lived and worked there.

Presenter: Teaching History in Luxembourgish Secondary Schools in the 1950s-1970s: Ideas and Experiments

‘We don’t like over-emphasised patriotism; our national experience is simply more reserved than that of our larger neighbours. Since we do not feel as the significant part in big developments, such as is the case of for example France and Germany, we are forced from the outset to a certain modesty’, Fanny Beck-Mathekowitsch wrote in the pedagogical student thesis she submitted in order to receive a Luxembourg teacher’s accreditation in 1952.
