Global Futures - Sophie Pedder: Who is Emmanuel Macron?

Sophie Pedder: Who is Emmanuel Macron?

Global Futures
From the yellow vests movement to critiques on his political acumen throughout the “Great National Debate”, Emmanuel Macron has faced many public challenges to his presidency over this past year. The people of France had high hopes for their new centrist leader post-election, but through his term we have seen his approval rating fall. In this episode of the Global Futures podcast, Joel Sandhu from the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) sits down with Sophie Pedder to discuss the Macron presidency and contemporary France-EU politics. Sophie Pedder is The Economist’s Paris Bureau Chief responsible for the paper’s political and economic coverage of France. The paperback of her latest book, “Revolution Française: Emmanuel Macron and the Quest to Reinvent a Nation” (Bloomsbury, 2018) is out now. Here she is to talk about Macron’s plan and action for a more unified and global France, his pro-EU vision, the upcoming EU Parliament Elections, and Macron’s persona outside of the public eye.
