French Elections: Implications for Europe

19 April 2022, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

What does the French election mean for France – and for Europe’s future?

Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will once again contest the final round of the French presidential elections as they did in 2017 when Macron won easily by 66% to 33%. But this time could be different after the first round of voting showed the incumbent president ahead of her by some 5 points – and projections pointing to a very tight outcome on April 24.

What does this mean for France – and for Europe’s future?

We’ll be discussing these critical questions with:

  • David O’Sullivan, former EU ambassador and leading Commission official who now heads Ireland’s Institute of International & European Affairs;
  • Jon Henley, the Guardian’s Paris-based Europe correspondent;
  • Assa Samaké-Roman, an editor at La revue écossaise;
  • John Lichfield, former Paris correspondent of the Independent now writing insightful columns from his home in Normandy.

This is an unmissable live debate to be chaired by European Movement in Scotland executive member David Gow.

More details and registration here.

The event will be recorded, you can catch up later here.
