On Thursday (2 June) the President of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet, will be awarded this year's International Charlemagne Prize (Karlspreis). Here is some information, from December when Trichet was "picked", at the official Charlemagne Prize website: http://www.karlspreis.de/aktuelles/karlspreis_2011.html
That text is in German; the English version is here: http://www.aachen.de/EN/sb/pr_az/karls_ ... index.html
Last year the Charlemagne Prize was awarded to the Polish prime minister Donald Tusk. His speech (13 May 2010) can be read in English here: http://www.karlspreis.de/preistraeger/2 ... lisch.html
Here is an interview (text in English) with Jean-Claude Trichet about the euro, the ECB and the prize: http://www.ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date ... 28.en.html
