The French presidential election represents a crucial window of opportunity for the future of Europe and will set the tone for the fate of waves of populism across the continent. We will describe the dynamic of the candidates’ campaigns just four days before the first round, which will determine the two finalists. The webinar will cover:

  • The political landscape in France and what is to be expected in the aftermath of this election for the short term
  • Voting behaviors and scenarios based on the most recent polls and predictions
  • The core of the most popular candidates’ programs; quantifying their proposals, assessing their accuracy and pointing out missing realms in the debate
