The Board of Directors of the Jean Monnet Association elected Philippe Laurette as its new President at its General Assembly on 2 July 2022. Philippe Laurette succeeds Henri Malosse.

President Philippe Laurette praised the work of Henri Malosse in rebuilding a team and the new visibility given to the Jean Monnet Association after a period of profound changes for our structure.
