Statement of the Funder Print E-mail

Dear Users,

Welcome to the website of the Robert Schuman Foundation.

In the aftermath of the second-world-war and the atrocities which have ravaged this continent, Robert Schuman, a convinced Christian Democrat, dedicated his life to the creation of a united and peaceful Europe.

As Christian Democrats it is our duty, to put every effort in continuing the path that was once set by him. He was a true European and his beliefs and convictions are an important reference to me but also to the work of the parliamentary group I have the honour to preside.

It is our commitment to strengthen European values inside the European Union but also in neighbouring countries. We stand for Christian values, respect of human rights, the rule of law and democratic institutions.

The Robert Schuman Foundation is a very important instrument in encouraging many dedicated young people to take active steps in order to achieve these aims. Sometimes this is not easy, especially where the Christian Democrats are a minority in the political spectrum of a country. That is why it is very important for them to know that they can rely on our solidarity.

In this website you will find all the necessary information about the activities of the Robert Schuman Foundation, about project support, traineeship programmes and events, organized by the Foundation.

Joseph DAUL

Chairman of the EPP Group
