60th anniversary of Robert Schuman declaration
Robert Schuman is considered one of the fathers of Europe. In his Declaration of 9 May 1950, he proposes to place the French-German production of coal and steel under a common High Authority, within an organization open to the participation of the other European countries. The Schuman Plan led to the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), which is at the origin of the current European Union.
