To mark the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome which established the European Economic Community and to recall the contribution to European unity made by the exceptional personality of Jean Monnet, a seminar-cum-round table was held at the India International Centre in Delhi on February 2, 2007.
This publication includes the proceedings of the Seminar and a talk by Dr Karan Singh on India and the Ideal of Human Unity.
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt: “Monnet is the rare example, I should say the unique example, of a politician who could realize his objectives without this essential element of politics that is power.”
US President John F. Kennedy to Jean Monnet: “You are transforming Europe by the power of a constructive idea.”
