Jean-Luc Dehaene 1940 – 2014

We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene, one of Belgium’s great leaders and a central figure in the growth and consolidation of the European Union.

He will be remembered with deep gratitude by the American people as one of Europe’s most unifying figures and as a champion of the shared values which help keep our transatlantic bond alive.
