On Friday, January 31, 2020, the Pierre Mauroy Institute organized a symposium in the Senate in France, under the title: "Pierre Mauroy ou la passion de l'Internationale" in honor of Mauroy's commitment to international affairs. The Secretary General of the Socialist International Luis Ayala, who was one of the keynote speakers invited to the event, highlighted the important contribution that Pierre Mauroy made in international politics and in particular his role in the Socialist International, first as one of its Vice-Presidents and then as its President. He recalled that one of his first meetings with Mauroy took place in his home country, Chile, at a time when it was still under military dictatorship, and commented on Mauroy’s lifelong active commitment to the principles and values of the global social-democratic political family.
The event, which was chaired by Michel Thauvin, co-president of the Institute, also received a message from the UN Secretary General António Guterres, a former president of the Socialist International.
