Big Ben.WHO ARE WE ?

The “Maison de l’Europe en Limousin” was founded in I993 in Limoges by the Regional Association of Twinned Cities in order to answer the numerous questions from citizens on European issues and affairs. We are what is called an “Association Loi 1901” ie. a non-profit making organisation affiliated to the French Federation of “Maisons de l’Europe” which is currently chaired by Catherine LALUMIERE (former president of the Council of Europe, MEP and Minister).

All the French “Maisons de l’Europe” who so wish are part of the EUNET network which was set up in 2004 in order to promote EU integration by encouraging citizens to get involved.
We are not a political or militant organization, our goal is exclusively to provide information on EU issues to the citizens and encourage them to make best use of their European citizenship.
