November 15, 2007
One has got used to the fact that monthly magazines arrive quite early: In November you get the December issue with the October news. It seems the International Charlemagne Prize has a similar timing: On 13 November the prize committee announced the winner of the 2008 Charlemagne Prize: Angela Merkel.
The official ceremony will take place in Aachen on 1 May 2008.
