High-level seminar on Pascal Lamy’s archives
Genevieve Pons, former environment advisor in the Delors cabinet, gave some anecdotes about the Delors - Lamy duo during the panel on Pascal Lamy's 10 years as Head of Cabinet of Jacques Delors (1984 - 1994). During this panel, Christine Verger (Vice-President of the Jacques Delors Institute) recalled, among other appellations of Pascal Lamy during this period, that of "Monk - Soldier" illustrating his determined commitment to his functions. Finally, Jean Pierre Jouyet evoked the management of Jacques Delors' cabinet by Pascal Lamy: concision and efficiency.
A second panel then addressed Pascal Lamy's mandate as European Commissioner for Trade (1999 - 2004) in which Arancha González and Denis Redonnet (Deputy DG at the Commission) intervened. In conclusion, Sébastien Maillard (Director of the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris) underlined the importance of the partnership between the Jacques Delors Institute and the Historical Archives of the European Union in the framework of which this Seminar was organised.
