Living Together Facing Fears: the French Political Dilemma
This Policy Paper by Yves Bertoncini, our director, and Dídac Gutiérrez-Peris, director European affairs of the Viavoice Institute, analyses the results of an exclusive poll by YouGov on fears in France and in Europe, and their impact on political debates.
1) fear is a defining element of the French public debate;
2) the upcoming elections may allow the expression of a growing antipathy and determine if the Front national is seen as a possible recourse or an other threat;
3) the euroscepticism of French people is not the expression of europhobia that will lead to the exit from the European Union.
This Policy Paper will be presented during a debate in Paris on the 20th of March, at the Maison de l’Europe. More information about the event here.
