Kohl's beliefs about EMU and governing style are examined, along with the policy ideas of Stoltenberg and the power of the Finance Ministry and of the Bundesbank over EMU. Particular attention is paid to attempts to fend off challenges to develop the EMS. Crucial to this account is the role of Genscher and then of Kohl in preparing the Hanover European Council and in sustaining the political initiative by binding in the Bundesbank through Pöhl's role in the Delors Committee. The role and impact of German unification was central to the reframing of EMU in 1989–90 and to Kohl's leadership role.

Keywords:   Bundesbank, Delors Committee, EMS, Hans‐Dietrich Genscher, German unification, governing style, Hanover, Helmut Kohl, Karl‐Otto Pöhl, Gerhard Stoltenberg
