Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Emmanuel Macron: The Revolutionary President

Emmanuel Macron: The Revolutionary President

About the Event

After his surprise election as French President, Emmanuel Macron promised to transform not only French politics but also France's international relationships. As his current term approaches its end, many ask: can Macron's "neither left nor right” politics win him reelection? In this month's People, Politics, and Prose, Ronald J. Granieri will be joined by FPRI's Joseph de Weck to discuss his new book, Emmanuel Macron: The Revolutionary President. Granieri and de Weck will consider the future of Macron's presidency and what a Macron reelection could mean for France, and for Europe.

People, Politics, and Prose with Ron Granieri features in-depth conversations with authors of recent books on international affairs and national security. Moderated by FPRI’s Ronald J. Granieri, each session will build on the book’s contents to discuss the author’s influences and motivations, relating everything to current events to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of our contemporary world.
