Robert Triffin (1911-1993), a Belgian-born economist who spent much of his career in America, had a major influence on 20th-century economic thinking. He is particularly known for his monetary approach. His intellectual legacy revolves ariund the 'Triffin dilemma' or 'Triffin paradox'. Triffin accurately predicted the end of the Bretton Woods system, though not for the right reasons. Triffin stuck by his monetary theory that it was much harder to achieve sound international economic management with flexible exchange rates and that best practices were by no means a guarantee of global stability if they were not accompanied by genuine international coordination. Triffin was also a committed European. He was close to Jean Monnet and Pierre Werner and worked alongside them from the early 1960's onwards in favour of European monetary integration. [less ▲]

With a long tradition of political stability and social democracy, a creative development model, skilled human capital and a culture of consensus, Luxembourg is at the forefront of Europe. Its main strategic challenge is how to achieve economic diversification while maintaining the sustainability of the Luxembourg social model. The country has embarked on the "third industrial revolution", with innovation as the main driver of sustainable growth and the University of Luxembourg as a major player. [less ▲]

Banquier, penseur de la finance internationale et Européen convaincu, Alexandre Lamfalussy (1929-2015) est, sans conteste, l’un des architectes de l’euro. Dans ses jeunes années, il s’intéresse à l’intégration européenne et aux questions financières et monétaires. Lorsqu'il devient banquier, notamment au sein de la BRI (1976-1993), est l’un des premiers à alerter contre l’accumulation des dettes en Amérique latine et à préconiser une meilleure régulation internationale pour éviter les excès. Il fait de la surveillance macro-prudentielle des systèmes financiers un objectif central de la BRI. À la fin des années 1980, il devient memrbe du Comité Delors sur l’UEM, avant de devenir le premier président de l’Institut monétaire européen (IME) (1994-1997) et de préparer la création de la Banque centrale européenne (BCE). En 2000 il préside le « Comité des Sages » qui propose une nouvelle régulation des marchés financiers européens - le "processus Lamfalussy". Sous l’égide du G20, il participe à l’«initiative du Palais-Royal » pilotée par Michel Camdessus et Tommaso Padoa-Schioppa, qui avance une réforme complète du Système monétaire international (SMI).

Starting from Gaston Bachelard’s assumption that “all knowledge is an answer to a question”, the study proposes the use of comparative textual analysis to formulate research questions. A set of questions were derived via the TXM, Textométrie software, a tool for lexicometry and statistical analysis. Two historical documents on the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) were examined, the Werner report and the Delors report (French versions). The “quest for questions” was based on the comparison of the documents, using the TXM specificities feature that highlights what properties are specific, as overuse or deficit, to a part versus the rest of a corpus. The documents were analysed both as entire units and as fragments (numbered parts and sections). The specificities were computed for the noun-adjective combination and parts of speech, the properties with specificity scores higher and lower than the TXM default positive and negative banality thresholds being selected for further enquiry and subsequently used to formulate research questions. Although further experiments, testing with other corpora and theoretical formalisation are required, the first results show that digital tools may serve not only as hypotheses or conclusions validators but also as means of discovering exploration paths to support interpretation and the construction of new knowledge in digital history.

Il y a des personnalités qui demeurent dans la mémoire collective par l’empreinte qu’elles ont laissée sur le destin de leurs pays. Pierre Werner (29 décembre 1913 – 24 juin 2002) est de ceux-là. Ministre d’État, Premier Ministre et ministre des Finances pendant de longues décennies, cet intellectuel catholique et démocrate résolu fut l’un des rares hommes d’État qui a traversé le XXe siècle. Animé par son humanisme chrétien profondément ancré dans la tradition et par son esprit visionnaire, il a su, avec courage et ténacité, faire évoluer la société luxembourgeoise vers plus de liberté, de solidarité et de partage, tout en ouvrant de nouveaux horizons vers un bel avenir à inventer et à bâtir dans l’unité. La diversification économique, la promotion du Luxembourg au rang de place financière internationale, le développement du secteur audiovisuel à travers le projet des satellites, l’avènement d’une Union économique et monétaire en Europe, la culture de la concertation sociale et du consensus font partie des initiatives audacieuses qu’il a transmises à ses continuateurs. Car, avec rigueur et persévérance, Pierre Werner a toujours donné corps à ses visions, en étant source d’inspiration pour les nouvelles générations. [less ▲]

L’année 2017 est marquée par la commémoration de deux événements charnières pour l’Union européenne – le 60e anniversaire du traité de Rome et le 25e anniversaire du traité de Maastricht. Établi à l’origine entre six États membres, le projet européen, dont le Luxembourg et ses personnalités comptent parmi les précurseurs, ambitionnait de garantir une paix durable et la prospérité en Europe par le biais de la coopération et de l’intégration. Forgé au gré des succès et des crises, ce processus a progressivement porté ses fruits. Le grand marché intérieur avec ses quatre libertés fondamentales, l’euro, la promotion de la démocratie, d’un modèle social européen et des droits humains, la citoyenneté européenne, les infrastructures du savoir font actuellement partie de la vie quotidienne de 510 millions d’Européens. Élargie à 28 membres, l’UE pèse aujourd’hui comme facteur de progrès et de solidarité sur le destin d’un monde de plus en plus globalisé. Parallèlement aux grands chantiers de l’Union politique, énergétique, fiscale et de la défense européenne, l’année 2017 est empreinte par bon nombre d’incertitudes. La mise en œuvre du Brexit, la crise des réfugiés, la tentation du repli identitaire attisé par les batailles électorales, sont autant de sources de fragmentation qui nourrissent l’euroscepticisme et assombrissent l’avenir de l’UE.

One of the major research projects currently under way is dedicated to the European vocation and achievements of Pierre Werner, a former Prime Minister, Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Luxembourg, unanimously recognised as one of the architects of Economic and Monetary Union. The first stage of the research project particularly focuses on the plan for the establishment by stages of an economic and monetary union (more widely known as the Werner Report or the Werner Plan), drawn up by a group of experts chaired by Pierre Werner and officially presented on 8 October 1970 in Luxembourg. The project will then concentrate on the events that subsequently led to Economic and Monetary Union, as seen through the eyes of Pierre Werner and from the perspective of his own contribution; it will also examine a number of issues in which the former Luxembourg Prime Minister was particularly involved, such as the question of the seats of the institutions, the Luxembourg Compromise, the accession of the United Kingdom, and cooperation between the Benelux countries and the Belgo-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU).

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. In 1968 he delivered a clear roadmap to EMU founded on a symmetrical economic and monetary union, with political union as the ultimate goal. Werner’s vital input and the ‘effective parallelism’ principle he imagined, were evident in the Werner Report of 1970, which was offered as the blueprint for EMU in the EU. Based on the Werner family archives and original interviews, this chapter highlights Werner’s contribution as architect of EMU in a threefold way: intellectual input, negotiation methods and consensus building.

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.
