MEDITERRANEAN AWARD FOR ISTITUTIONS
NICOLAS SARKOZY
President of the French Republic, FRANCE

For his project of the Union for the Mediterranean. This action, pertaining to all the Countries converging on the Mediterranean and equally settled like the European Union, could be an initiative able to transform in a radical manner the inter-Mediterranean relationships. If politically there are not sufficient precedents, this idea has behind a thousand-year history of convergence expressed by the wide synthesis that succeeded in the Mediterranean. To give to this history a political conclusion is a big vision to which we cannot renounce.
