A few headlines of today's international press announcing the death of former Prime Minister Dehaene.

"Former Belgian Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene, who worked as hard to keep his linguistically divided nation together as he did to give Europe more unity, has died. He was 73". 
The Washington Post

"Former Belgian Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene, a major figure in European politics throughout the 1990s and a renowned advocate of deeper European integration, died on Thursday aged 73, his party said"
Reuters

"Dehaene was an important politician in Europe - he helped set up the European Union's constitution and led his nation during the 1990s".
The Guardian


« UN HOMME D'ÉTAT HORS DU COMMUN »
Nommé vice-président de la Convention européenne en 2002, il a été l'un des artisans du traité constitutionnel européen, qui sera finalement rejeté en 2005. Il a ensuite été président du conseil d'administration de Dexia entre 2008 et 2012. Jean-Luc Dehaene avait aussi été appelé à résoudre, sans succès, la crise de gouvernance entre Flamands et Wallons.
