Building one Europe - Selected articles and speeches(2002-2004) (2004)
When it comes to human rights, democracy and the rule of law, there should be only one Europe; a Europe based on one set of values, embodied in one set of rules, protected by one mechanism. A Europe from Moscow to Brussels, from Ankara to Luxembourg, and from Sarajevo to Strasbourg. Nobody is too big and too important to work on an equal footing with others. This belief was at the heart of the visionary project created by Monnet, Schuman and others more than fifty years ago. Today, we need to ask ourselves whether we have the vision and courage to live up to their example.
