At this webinar, our expert speakers analysed the Presidential election campaign so far and the possible implications of the election result. They discussed the various candidates and their programmes and electoral prospects.

Among the questions discussed were: What would a strong populist vote mean for Europe? What impact will the events in Ukraine have on the campaign and Macron’s vision of European sovereignty? How are relations with Germany and the UK likely to be affected?
