Welcome

Notre Fondation est dévoluée à l'Europe et à la démocratie. L'une ne vas pas sans l'autre. L'Europe a appris la démocratie par son histoire et elle l'a enseigné au monde. La démocratie est un régime fragile qui exige l'étude et la réflexion. Car comme l'a écrit un oriental perspicace "Etudier sans réfléchir est vain. Réfléchir sans étudier est dangereux". C'est pourquoi notre fondation servira l'Europe et la démocratie par l'étude et par la réflexion.

Jean Claude Casanova
