Roma community: a political football once again

The lingering issue of Roma people is back on the front-burner as politicians from the far-right but also from the right lash out at what they believe is the abusive behaviour of this community. Also this week, Nicolas Sarkozy made a very public comeback to French politics. The question is: does this mean he will run for president in 2017? Marc Perelman and his guests give us their take.

On the set:

  • Philip Turle, Journalist, RFI;
  • Jean-Marc Gonin, Le Figaro Magazine.

Prepared by Marc Perelman and Léa Berdugo.

By FRANCE 24
