[en] In the second half of 2015, Luxembourg will hold the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union for the 12th time. This country, which lies between France and Germany, has taken on the role of mediator between larger powers and has simultaneously succeeded in defending its vital interests. After the Second World War, its politicians made European integration a key plank of their policy. Since the time of Joseph Bech, from Pierre Werner and Gaston Thorn to Jacques Santer and Jean-Claude Juncker more recently, Luxembourg has proved itself to be a master in the art of political consensus and a rich source of ‘men of providence’ who have been able to find a way out of Europe’s successive impasses.
