The French Election, Analyzed

The Overseas Press Club of America (OPC) and the American Library in Paris will convene to discuss the outcome of the 2022 French presidential election. Broadly seen as a litmus test for the rising tide of populism across Europe, the results of this election may determine the future of the European Union and its international vision. At stake is the identity of the Fifth Republic: will the French people align themselves with Macron’s image of France as the center of European partnership, or with the nationalist picture of a once-strong France in decline? What will happen to immigration, secularism, security, and social cohesion in France in the election’s wake?

Panelists:

Vivienne Walt, OPC Governor and Paris correspondent for TIME & FORTUNE

Victor Mallet, Paris bureau chief of the Financial Times

Sarah Paillou, presidential campaign reporter, Journal du Dimanche.

Nadia Pantel, chief Paris correspondent, Süddeutsche Zeitung (Munich).

The moderator will be David A. Andelman, Past OPC President, CNN columnist and former CBS News Paris correspondent, author of Andelman Unleashed.
