Our new report – written by leading authorities on the volatile and seemingly unpredictable atmosphere of French politics – delivers an impartial, fact-driven exploration of the ongoing presidential race in France. To provide the context of these elections, our report begins with a detailed look at François Hollande’s policies, low approval ratings, and contentious legacy as the President of France.
The report then evaluates the leading contenders vying to be his replacement – François Fillon, with economically liberal and socially conservative values; Marine Le Pen representing the controversial National Front; and Emmanuel Macron, a untraditional, young reformist with broadly liberal values, and fervent supporter of globalism.
Our report finishes with a forecast of the results of the French Presidential elections, and what that will mean for France, Europe, and the greater global community, in the context of the current anti-establishment movement.DOWNLOAD DOCUMENT
