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.

Jeroen Dewulf is the Director of the Institute of European Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He is an expert in European politics, and his publications include The Pinkster King and the King of Kongo: The Forgotten History of America’s Dutch-Owned Slaves.

Patrick Chamorel is a Senior Resident Scholar at the Stanford University Center in Washington D.C. He is an expert in European politics and 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. He is an expert in critical theory and semiotics, and his publications include Affective Literacies: Writing and Multilingualism in the Late Middle Ages.
