This Tribune by Herman Van Rompuy is based on his speech on 25 November 2014, during a conference co-organised by Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute and Sciences Po Paris.

His speech took stock of his five years as president of the European Council and focused on three major political responsibilities:
1. speaking the truth,
2. creating hope,
3. and instilling and ensuring trust.

His speech was introduced by Pascal Lamy, honorary president of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, after a welcome address by Frédéric Mion, director of Sciences Po and before a debate with the audience moderated by Yves Bertoncini, director of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute.

The Tribune is also available in French and German.

A Synthesis of the conference will soon be available.

Herman Van Rompuy also held a speech in a similar conference at the beginning of his term of office, on 20 September 2010. His speech was entitled : “No renationalisation of European politics but europeanisation of national politics“.
