Anne-Marie Le Gloannec, 1951-2017

Very sorry to learn this morning that we lost Anne-Marie Le Gloannec last week. She was intelligent, witty, perceptive, wise, and shamefully unappreciated in the English-speaking world - though her English was perfect, she concentrated much more on Germany as France's key partner, and on the EU as a global player.

In her last interview, with the Bertelsmann Stiftung at the end of March (when she must have already known that her time was short), she was asked,
What is the greatest challenge facing the EU today?
Her reply:
We are richer for her life and thoughts.
