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.
