As France discovers the new making of its national assembly, this webinar will analyse the election results and reflect on their impact on a geopolitical Europe. At a time when the continent must project unity and strength in the face of Russian aggression, what will the election mean for France’s foreign policy and Europe more broadly? The vote will be crucial in determining whether the country can maintain its leadership role in Europe or if it will recede into a phase of introspection and reduced international engagement.
