Panel Discussion | The French Election and the Future of Europe, May 15

May 10, 2017

The 2017 French presidential election proved to be one of the most important in recent memory.

While there was strong support for the far-right and the anti-European “Front National”, the new pro-European citizenship movement “En Marche” proved victorious with 65% of the vote.

The vote not only sent shock waves through the French Republic, but also throughout the world as populist, anti-European rhetoric and xenophobia soar.

Join us for a special panel discussion sponsored by the Center for West European Studies, the EU Center, and the Department of French and Italian Studies at the University of Washington.

When: Monday, May 15, 2017
Time: 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Where: University of Washington, Walker Ames Room, Kane Hall 225

This event is free and open to the public.
