With the recent elections in the UK and France, what might the rise of Corbyn and the election of Macron mean for the global political forecast? Do these results give us clues about the future of Europe and European geopolitics with the United States? Maria Armoudian speaks with Jeroen Dewulf, Patrick Chamorel and Mark Amsler.

Patrick Chamorel is a Senior Resident Scholar at the Stanford University Center in Washington DC. He is the author of the article “Now It’s France’s Turn.”

Mark Amsler is the Director of the Europe Institute at the University of Auckland. His publications include Affective Literacies: Writing and Multilingualism in the Late Middle Ages and Etymology and Grammatical Discourse in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.
