Soft Skills: The 2022 French Presidential Debate
by Michael Rickwood —
The 2022 French presidential election debate serves up a new dish, more palatable than the one served in 2017. On Wednesday night, 20th of April 2022, two presidential candidates battled in Paris for the next five years in a crucial election here in France. For Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen this was their second debate, the last being back in 2017. But last night’s debate was very different. Now, from a policy point of view, many views were exchanged on the environment, security, the economy and the current international context amongst many others.
