Conference 934: Can Macron lead Europe to fix a broken world? [fr]
After the blowbacks of 2016, what future for international cooperation?
Ten years after the 2008 financial crisis, the western world seems to have embraced economic growth again. Diplomacy, on the other hand, faces a slowdown in international cooperation. Indeed, the forces of nationalism and populism are undermining global governance.
Is this defiance against multilateral ideas the manifestation of a wider malaise?
Is there an opportunity for Europe to strengthen the “concert of nations”?
A diplomacy expert and international relations strategist, Justin Vaïsse has been tasked by President Macron to launch a new initiative, the Paris Peace Forum, which will be held in November 2018.
On February the 27th Mr. Justin Vaïsse, will join Irene Finel-Honigman, Professor of International Affairs at Columbia University, at the consulate to discuss the future of multilateral ideas and institutions, and answer the question on everyone’s mind: Can Macron really “save the world”?
