A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2014-05-27

Europe and the Rise of the Far-Right: Historic Inroads for Eurosceptics

In France, the far-right did more than finish first in European elections, it garnered just under 25% of the vote. The eurosceptics of UKIP in Britain fared even better, securing close to 28%. The far-right came tops in Denmark, too. Why did so many vote for anti-EU parties like the National Front? What policy is needed for a Europe that's reeling from austerity? And what about its place on the world stage?
