40 years on: De Gaulle's legacy

40 years after Charles de Gaulle’s death, France’s politicians still claim they’re following in his footsteps...but what's become of France's place in the world as carved out by the strong-minded general/statesman?

Philip GOLUB, Professor of international relations and foreign affairs at Paris VIII University and the American University of Paris
Jonathan RANDALL, Journalist and former war correspondent for the Washington Post
Paul VALLET, Professor of International Relations at Sciences Po and the American Graduate School of International Relations and Diplomacy
