On 23 April, French citizens will vote in the first round of the presidential election for their future head of state. With populist movements arising throughout Europe, France is also confronting this and many other challenges. On the other hand, the outcome of the election in France may have significant repercussions for the future of the European Union as a whole.

The debate is organised in cooperation with the Fondation Robert Schuman (Paris) in both English and French.
