Lunchtime Seminar: 12pm–2pm, 11 May 2012, Europe House, Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU

Europe and the world have changed fundamentally since French voters last went to the polls to elect a new President in 2007. Global financial and economic crisis has dominated world politics for the past five years. This in turn, has exposed  weaknesses in the eurozone and prompted urgent thinking about the remedies to the sovereign-debt crisis. France has been at the heart of the European project since the early 1950s and will certainly play a decisive role in resolving the current malaise. On 6th May 2012, the people of France will choose their next President, which will have profound consequences for the rest of the EU.

    Europe, the Eurozone Crisis and the French Presidential Elections of 2012

    This seminar brings together four analysts from academia and the private sector to discuss what the implications of the French Presidential elections are for Europe. We will look at what the election results mean politically and economically, as well as what they mean for business.

    The event is co-organised by the European Commission Representation and the Aston Centre for Europe.
    The event is free of charge and open to all, although you need to register in advance for security purposes by sending an email to
