A Bastille Day Discussion: Emmanuel Macron, France, and Europe’s Place in the World

July 14, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

The American Council on Germany is delighted to partner with the Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Townhall to host a conversation with ACG Chairman Ambassador John B. Emerson, Vice Chairman at Capital Group International, and former ACG President William M. Drozdiak, nonresident senior fellow at The Brookings Institution’s Center on the United States and Europe and a senior advisor with Europe with McLarty Associates, titled “A Bastille Day Discussion: Emmanuel Macron, France, and Europe’s place in the world” on Tuesday, July 14, at 11 am PT. (Bios for both speakers are included below.)

This special discussion will focus William Drozdiak’s new bookTHE LAST PRESIDENT OF EUROPE: Emmanuel Macron’s Race to Revive France and Save the World, where Drozdiak argues that Macron is the last staunch leader working to hold the European project together. The book delves into the plethora of challenges facing Macron at home and abroad — including Trump’s attacks on NATO and the international order, European politics, the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests) protesters, the resurgence of anti-Semitism, and the endless turmoil of Brexit. The conversation will move beyond Drozdiak’s book to an in-depth discussion regarding Franco-German relations, particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and European Union post-pandemic recovery fund, and Europe’s role on the world stage.
