France took over the EU presidency on January 1, 2022. The political situation in the EU and in France is confusing, and the mood is very volatile. The conflicts between France and the UK (fisheries, migration...) are shaping the "long Brexit" process. Domestically, it was uncertain who would run for which camp. It also seemed unclear which topics would be in the foreground, the issue of migration and integration again, or rather economic policy, internal security, even European policy? In his book about Emmanuel Macron, Joseph de Weck illuminates the president’s visions for European policy. Dr. Stefan Seidendorf, Deputy Director of the DFI Ludwigsburg and specialist for European issues analyzes the current situation in France, Germany and Europe. At the beginning of the election year, it is important untangle the issues and obtain a general overview.

Moderation: PD Dr. Felix Heidenreich. With interventions from students at the University of Stuttgart.
Welcome speech: Catherine Veber (Consul General of France and Director of the IF Stuttgart), Dr. Beata Lakeberg (Library of Contemporary History at the Württemberg State Library in Stuttgart).

This event is a cooperation between the Institut français Stuttgart, the University of Stuttgart's IZKT and the Library of Contemporary History at the Württemberg State Library in Stuttgart. From the series "70:20 Generations in Dialogue".
