MFJMCE Presentation: The Elysee Treaty

Event information


The Elysée Treaty was signed on January 22, 1963 by French President Charles De Gaulle and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer to consolidate its friendship and cooperation. Sixty years later, the world has changed, as have the challenges for European countries, but the solution remains the same: it is the continuation of the European project. The Franco-German partnership has a decisive role to play. More than ever, Europe needs a strong and united partnership between the Germans and the French. To celebrate this 60th Anniversary, join Consul General of France, Raphaël Trapp and Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Andreas Siegel for a discussion on the importance of the Franco-German relations, the European dimension, and transatlantic aspects.
