Our History

 

The Robert SCHUMAN Medal

The Robert Schuman Medal was introduced in July 1986 by the EPP Group to pay tribute to public figures who have advanced the cause of peace, the construction of Europe and human values through their public activities and personal commitment.


The Medal has been awarded to eminent public figures including former Heads of State and Government, Presidents of the European Parliament and Chairmen of our parliamentary Group, former Ministers and Members of the Commission, and Members of the European Parliament who have had a special influence on the work of the Group. Leading figures who do not belong to the European Union have also been honoured for their human rights activities.

The Robert Schuman Medal bears the name of the French statesman who, in 1950, proposed to Germany and other countries ravaged by war that they should establish peace between the peoples of Europe on the basis of a new European Community with strong, democratic institutions.

This Medal honours men and women whose courage and vision helped to reunite the continent of Europe and to bring into the world the values of freedom and democracy with which our political family identifies.
