Recorded on April 14, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Dr. von Habsburg's efforts for European unity span the troubled decades of the 20th Century. A proponent of pan-Europeanism since 1936, he has published 35 books in nine languages on historical, social and political topics and particularly on European politics. Since 1953 he has penned a weekly chronicle on current events which appears in many daily papers in several languages. In 1973, Dr. von Habsburg became President of the Paneuropean Union, the institution which pioneered many of the policies of today's European Union. As one of the initial architects of the EU and a key supporter of its growth and development, Dr. von Habsburg will address the significance of the expanding European Union and the possibilities and prospects for the newest EU countries in their evolving relationship with the United States.
