U.S. Must Share 'Global Burdens' With a Unified Europe, Says Former French Minister

If the United States wants Europe to share global burdens, it must share them with a strong, unified and independent Europe, says Elisabeth Guigou, former French Minister of Justice and former French Minister of European Affairs. Guigou, now a member of Parliament and a leading figure in the Parti Socialiste, explained the construction and contents of the European Union's proposed constitution. The European Union is not going to create a "super-state" that abolishes its constituent states, she said, but protect the richness of Europe's diversity by "unifying without uniformizing." Guigou's remarks were at a recent event sponsored by The Alliance Program and the Institute for the Study of Europe.
