Christian Democrat International (The)

Robert-Schuman's monument, Scy-Chazelles.


The New International Teams (NEI), formed in Liège in 1947, along with the gatherings held between 1947 and 1955 which brought together the primary Christian Democratic leaders of Western Europe in Geneva in the greatest secrecy, were important places for exchange and dialogue. In the context of the dawning Cold War, they played the role of a Christian Democratic International avant la lettre, which “facilitated” the advancement of the European integration process.
