Lambermont Agreement

The Lambermont Agreement actually refers to three political agreements that laid down the fifth State reform in 2000-2001. This primarily provided extra money for education in the French Community. Furthermore a number of competences were handed to the Regions. The agreements were concluded between the Flemish and French-speaking liberals, socialists, greens and the Volksunie (People’s Union), although the latter was divided. This division was of such an extent that the party fell apart, which eventually lead to the establishment of the N-VA.
