PANEL DISCUSSION | The French Election and the Future of Europe, May 15

April 20, 2017

The 2017 French presidential election is shaping up to be one of the most important and yet unpredictable in recent memory. While there is strong support for the far-right and anti-European “Front National”, there is equally strong support for the new pro-European citizen movement  “En Marche”. The election will not just alter the French Republic, it will profoundly shape the future of the European Union.

When: Monday, May 15, 2017
Time: 6:30-8:00 PM
Where: University of Washington, Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall 225
This event is free and open to the public.
