Europe Day

Europe Day is celebrated on 9 May each year. On that day we commemorate the declaration made by Robert Schuman in 1950. Robert Schuman was the French Minister for Foreign Affairs who on 9 May 1950 gave a speech leading to the foundation of the European Coal and Steel Community. This event marked the beginning of European unification. The NBBmuseum highlights different facets of the European story and mainly focuses on the role Belgium has played in this tale.

On 5th May the NBB celebrates its 167th birthday. It might just as well have been its 256th birthday, if Barbe-Louis-Josèphe de Nettine (1706-1755) had not put a stop to that. The NBBmuseum gives an account of the events.

New study on Paul van Zeeland

The monetary and financial history of the inter-war years is one of the most evocative parts of the NBB Museum. “From uncontrolled economic booms to deep depression” is how the period could be summed up. The role played at this time by Paul van Zeeland (1893-1973) as an economist, central banker and politician is quite remarkable. A newly released research paper throws new light on his ideas.
