TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-05-15

France 24's caravan heads to... France

Lille is a vibrant and welcoming place. But the former industrial belt around it has long become a stronghold for Marine Le Pen’s National Front. As local journalist Hervé Havre points out, the far-right party is now on track to become the strongest political force nationwide.

Reports by Claire Williams, Alix Le Bourdon and Donia Nouar.
