François Hollande, boosted by the war in Mali, plunged into European affairs this week; first with a major speech before the European Parliament in Strasbourg and now with a European summit in Brussels.

On the set:
- Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
- Jean-Marc Gonin, Senior Writer, Le Figaro Magazine.
