Event description

Description

In less than two months, France has changed presidents and its entire parliament. This complete political renewal was unprecedented. How did Macron do it? What is the Macron generation all about? Can they succeed against the traditional establishment in France and in Europe? What reforms do they want and what are the obstacles to reform? The new parliament in France is gaining power through executive orders - the pressure is on. France has given this political movement, La Republique En Marche! a clear mandate in the National Assembly. Now President Macron must deliver economic reforms and jobs and quickly bring down the country’s high unemployment rate. Macron and his party will also need to start delivering on his ambitious promises with regards on Europe. Can he succeed? In June, the French press criticized President Macron for his dictatorial approach and compared him to Jupiter [or Zeus, the supreme god]. What are the risks of the so-called “Jupiter” effect?
