Despite big differences over economic policy, Europe’s two most important leaders need each other more than ever before.
A selection of experts answer a new question from Judy Dempsey on the foreign and security policy challenges shaping Europe’s role in the world.
France’s new president has five years to put his country and Europe on a new trajectory. The challenges he faces are huge.
To increase its power in Europe and lessen German dominance, France needs to change itself and build a real European political union to underpin the euro.
In an election campaign dominated by opposing views on Europe and globalization, France’s presidential candidates agree that the country needs to rethink its traditional alliances.
The selection of the next president of France will have profound implications for the country, for Europe, and for the Western liberal order.
Voters in France should seize the upcoming presidential election as an opportunity to halt the country’s twenty-year economic decline and enact long-overdue reforms.
The future of Europe and, especially, of the Franco-German relationship depends on who becomes France’s next president.
