  12. French 4/5: Les élections européennes : quels en sont les enjeux?
    Course start date:  Tue 4 Jun 2024

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Frédéric Fournier
    Du 6 au 9 Juin 2024 les électeurs des 27 pays membres de l’Union Européennes sont appelés aux urnes pour le renouvellement du parlement Européen, comme ils le sont tous les 5 ans depuis 1979. Le Royaume-Uni ayant quitté l’Union Europénne ne participera pas á ces élections. Toutefois les résidents Européens au Royaume-Uni voteront dans leurs ambassades et consulats et les Francais voteront á Londres, Ashford, Belfast, Brighton, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Leeds et Manchester.







    Élus par quotas et par pays, avec un mode proportionnel, les 705 parlementaires Européens représentent une trés large diversité d’opinions politiques. Depuis 1979 une grande alliance composée de libéraux du centre droit et de sociaux démocrate a dominé le parlement mais cela pourrait changer cette année.







    Va t-on assister á une arrivée en masse des partis eurosceptiques et a une poussée de l’extreme droite ? Quelle sera la prochaine coalition ? Est-ce que le parlement poursuivra ses politiques environnementales ambitieuses ? Est-ce que la nouvelle majorité poursuivra son soutien á l’Ukraine ?







    This course is designed for both advanced French learners as well as native speakers of French.
