Le Samedi 9 Octobre, la France a fêté  le 40e anniversaire de l’abolition de la peine de mort. Parmi les événements commémorés par la presse, on compte le discours de l’ancien ministre de la Justice, Robert Badinter. Ce discours, tenu devant l’Assemblée Nationale le 17 septembre 1981, est un éloquent plaidoyer pour la dignité et la noblesse de la lutte pour les droits de l’Homme.

Le président Emmanuel Macron profite de cette occasion pour faire évoluer ses projets visant à assurer un leadership diplomatique en Europe et à l’international, en annonçant que la présidence française de l’Union Européenne impliquera une pression en faveur de l’abolition internationale totale de la peine de mort. En France, le débat fait

Our discussion with Professor Gagan Sood of the London School of Economics continues this week in the fifth episode of the Tocqueville 21 podcast! Back from the summer hiatus, we’re happy to present the fourth episode of the Tocqueville 21 podcast! Our discussion last week largely concerned the legacy of Fukuyama, a theme that we will continue to some degree this week. However, we will also discuss the nature of the field of Global History: its ins and outs and the challenges it poses both to previous modes of historical scholarship and, ultimately, to itself.

Ceci n’est pas un Cabri: L’Europe, l’Europe, l’Europe!

Macron’s recalling of France’s ambassadors isn’t so much sound and fury as it is a shrewd move to shape the future of European security, and ensure France’s position at its helm.

French President Emmanuel Macron’s recent decision to recall ambassadors to Australia and the United States marks one of the lowest points in a relationship long fraught with fraternal tensions. But the focus of Macron’s actions isn’t just this Atlantic friendship; it’s also Europe, specifically his dream for a more proactive and aggressive foreign policy for the European Union.

Anglophone news sources have spoken at length on the reasons and causes behind France’s abrupt recall of its ambassadors, underlining the
