United States of Europe
The Jean Monnet Association was founded in 1986. Its first president was Etienne Hirsch, a former collaborator and friend of Jean Monnet.
Its aim is to create a bridge between the past, present and future of the European Union, to explain its topicality and the founding values of peace, union, the pursuit of the common interest, tolerance and progress, in particular through the life and teachings of one of its main founding fathers, Jean Monnet.
Over the years, the Association has increased its activities to promote the memory of Jean Monnet and, more generally, the European identity.
