Le Luxembourg et la Grande-Région – coopération transfrontalière et intégration européenne

En menant campagne conjointe aux premières élections européennes au suffrage universel de 1979, Pierre Werner (Luxembourg) et Charles-Ferdinand Nothomb (Belgique) décident d’unir leurs efforts pour favoriser les synergies entre les deux Luxembourg. En 1987 est né le « Cercle européen ‘’Perspectives et réalités frontalières’’», devenu en 2002 le « Cercle Européen Pierre Werner ». Son 30e anniversaire a été célébrée le 22 mars 2018, lors d’une manifestation organisée à Luxembourg par le Cercle, le Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) et leurs partenaires, avec le Ministre des Finances, Pierre Gramegna, comme orateur invité.
