Laudation (extract)

Speaker Roy Jenkins on the laureate:

‘The willingness to work together must grow from day to day so that the ideals of a united Europe can be realized in a concrete way. […] Leo Tindemans has shown us the way of doing this. The separate governments of the Nine will not necessarily all agree with every detail of his report. Yet it is the best marching plan for the next chapter of the journey that we have or can have.’
