French Presidential Election 2017 (Panel Discussion)


JZ Young Lecture Theatre | Anatomy Building
Gower Street | London | WC1 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Alumni | Academic | Student
Admission: 0
Ticketing: Open

Whatever its outcome, the 2017 presidential election in France will be of resounding significance for the French Fifth Republic, Europe, and for democracy more generally. It crystallises many of the key challenges faced by liberal democracies today: How can we stem the tide of populism? What is the future of the European Union? How can we defend democratic values such as tolerance, inclusivity, and solidarity in an age of social-economic disenchantment?

To tackle some of these questions, the European Institute at UCL is hosting a panel discussion on 25 April 2017, between the two rounds of the French presidential election. The round table brings into conversation journalists, historians, political scientists, and economists to reflect on the consequences of the French elections for the future of democracy in Europe.

All are welcome to attend and to participate in the plenary discussion.
