French Elections: The Big Takeaways from Central Europe
On the 24th of April, the French will make a decisive choice between the centrist pro-European status quo and the extreme right nativist Euroskeptic and disruptive position. On top of France's importance for Europe, the extremely narrow race between two totally opposite candidates has focused attention even more on the elections from all over Europe, including the Centre and East. With the war raging in the East, Central and Eastern European voices on these crucial elections has never been more important than now. What is their take on the French Elections? What does a possible second term of Macron mean? Do they see any positive future prospects from a possible first Le Pen term?

In a debate, GLOBSEC Brussels welcomes top policy experts from Central and Eastern Europe to voice their takeaways on the French elections. Expect a lively debate that answers questions important for the future of the European security order, European integration and the topic of ‘illiberal democracies’.

Speakers:
- Toomas Hendrik Ilves - Former President Estonia
- Jakub Wiśniewski PhD - Secretary of the Board and Special Advisor to President at GLOBSEC.
- Péter Krekó - Executive director of Political Capital Institute in Budapest
Veronika Víchová - Deputy Director for Analysis and Head of the Kremlin Watch Program at the European Values Center for Security Policy.
