Mitterrand's beliefs about Europe and EMU and his governing style are analysed. The history of his engagement with this issue is traced from the ERM crisis of 1983 and the issue of reconciling socialism to the ERM through to the Balladur Memorandum and the French management of the Delors Committee in 1988–89. The hesitations of Bérégovoy are examined, alongside the role of presidential leadership in taking an active role after the Delors Report, especially through Guigou.

Keywords:   Edouard Balladur, Pierre Bérégovoy, Jacques Delors, ERM, France, governing style, Elisabeth Guigou, leadership, François Mitterrand, socialism
