[en] The digital research corpus ‘A rereading of the Werner Report of 8 October 1970 in the light of the Pierre Werner family archives’ showcases the results of the first stage of the ‘Pierre Werner and Europe’ research project (2011-2013). Based on a thorough exploration of the Werner family archives, which have been opened for the first time for research purposes, and also on other relevant archives — both Luxembourgish and international, public and private — containing multimedia material in several languages, this corpus throws light on the alchemy of the Werner Report and the mindset in which it was developed. Previously unpublished documents have helped clarify the varied, nuanced role of Pierre Werner and his personal contribution to the development and adoption of the stage-by-stage plan, on a theoretical, methodological and political level, in the context of his European achievements as a whole.
The research corpus contains a comprehensive, varied selection of primary sources and related resources, as well as a detailed analytical study, which provides a new interpretation of various little-known, original sources. This corpus offers a ‘rereading’, a fresh look at the Werner Report, retracing the context and historical background in which the report was drafted and examining the work of the Werner Committee, and highlighting the impact of the Werner Plan on the path towards Economic and Monetary Union. In the interests of clarity, the study is accompanied by a list of references cited by section, as well as a list of key figures with brief biographical details, a comprehensive bibliography and a chronology.
