The Debate

List your demands: Can Macron's 'National Debate' engage Yellow Vests?

Can France's president find a way to connect with the Yellow Vests? In week ten of a leaderless movement, anyone posing as leader gets rejected. So how does Macron try to create a dialogue? He pens a letter to every citizen and launches The Grand Debate, a town hall-style public forum to list grievances. But already he's drawn red lines, like the refusal to scrap France's wealth tax. What can emerge from these interactions? Can France modernise democracy, in line with the times?
