After the elections in the Netherlands, France is electing a new President May 7, one month before the British are called to the polls again.

The presidential election campaign was marked by surprises, scandals and uncertainties alike. Up until the last moment voters were undecided who to vote for. Finally Emmanuel Macron with his dynamic campaign En Marche! and right wing leader of Front National, Marine Le Pen, made it into the final round in anticipation to become France’s next president.

The election is decisive, as the two remaining candidates symbolise two contrary paths France could take in the future. What will the results mean for a deeply divided French society? Why is the outcome of this election also crucial for the EU?

Join us and our panelists for a breakfast discussion on the French elections 2017– The Morning After as the results and its potential impact for France and Europe as a whole will be analysed.
