Post-Brexit: What Happens In France?
A recent Pew Research Center study found that 61 percent of French people hold an unfavorable view of the EU. In that same report, 60 percent of those who responded said they wished that the government of France would focus on the country’s own problems, rather than “helping” other countries.
France’s Marine Le Pen, a leader of the far right called the British decision to leave the EU an “act of courage.”
We take a look at the implications of the Brexit vote in France with Philippe LeCorre, a visiting fellow at the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution.
