    History of the Luxembourg-Harvard Association

    The Luxembourg-Harvard Association was established in 1987 at the invitation of Jacques Santer, Prime Minister of Luxembourg. In February of that year, Santer visited Harvard for the Model United Nations program sponsored by the International Relations Council. Impressed by the undergraduates he met, he spoke with several Harvard Deans about an academic collaboration with his country. Santer offered the University, under the auspices of his Government, the opportunity to develop academic programs for students and scholars "on transatlantic issues that will help to improve comprehension for mutual concerns and contribute to find common solutions for the problems ahead." Operating out of the Office of the Prime Minister and under the Direction of Dr. Armand Clesse, who worked closely with Harvard personnel and students (particularly Dean of Students, Archie C. Epps III), the Association sponsored several conferences and published books as well. In October 1990, Clesse founded the Luxembourg Institute for European and International Studies which provided an institutional framework for activities that were previously organized by the Luxembourg- Harvard Association.
