Event description

Description

In September of 2016, Emmanuel Macron decided to launch a movement called En Marche in order to change the way the French people looked at politics. With a very small dedicated team, all under age 30, he traveled around the country and gave speeches about his desire to reform France and Europe in an unprecedented way. This seminar will explore the inner workings of the Macron campaign and its path to victory: how Emmanuel Macron and his team created an original political campaign and the challenges they faced; how they developed their message; how the last months of the election unfolded against a contemporary global backdrop that included the threat of cyberattacks and of terrorism; how Macron dealt with foreign leaders during the campaign; and how he built a successful strategy against rising populism in France to win against far-right leader Marine Le Pen.

This seminar is part of IOP Resident Fellow Laura Haim's series, “France and Europe: Made in Macron?."
