The French Elections: A critique | Sweden, Finland and the NATO membership

2 May 2022

By GP course scholars


Session I: 1600-1645 hours
Macron’s Re-election: Four challenges in Parliamentary Polls
As the French voters hand Macron a second term, questions now loom large on the parliamentary elections in June 2022. Will it be another comfortable win for Macron or should the country look forward to a cohabitation between a centrist President and far right or left Prime Minister?
Sourina Bej, PhD Candidate, University of Bonn, Germany. 

2022 Presidential Elections: Rise of the far-right in France
The French presidential elections were conducted on 10 and 24 April 2022. Emmanuel Macron, representing the La République En Marche, created history by becoming the only president since Jacques Rene Chirac in 2002 to win a re-election bid.

Session II: 1645-1715 hours
The Changing Equation of Nordic States: Examining the Sweden-Finland NATO membership
