Speech (extract) by Jürgen Linden

Mayor Jürgen Linden on the laureate:

‘She does not want absenteeism but rather participation in the progressive formation of the European Union, in the ambitious goals of political, economic, social and monetary integration and in the creation of a new European vision in which the old continent sees itself as a meaningful part of the earth that masters global problems with global cooperation. The consciousness of this years Charlemagne Prize recipient is truly a European one.’
