Event description

Description

French voters will go to the polls in late April and early May to elect a new president. The outcome in France, the second largest country in the European Union, will have ripple effects across Europe and the world. Center-right candidate Francois Fillon has enjoyed leads in most polls, but right-wing populist Marine Le Pen predicts a Trump-style surprise, and the impact of socialist and independent candidates cloud the picture considerably.

Join Atlas Network on Tuesday, April 4th in New York City for a reception featuring Alexandre Pesey, founder of the Institut de Formation Politique (IFP) who will discuss the upcoming election, and the opportunities that exist for free-market reforms along the lines championed by his organization.

The mission of IFP is to increase the number and effectiveness of conservative and classical liberal public policy leaders and activists in France. IFP trains students from throughout France how to effectively promote individual freedom and personal responsibility in the public sphere.

Open to Atlas Club Members, Trendsetters members, and their guests. Suggested $50 donation for all others.
