Lessons Learned From France’s New Popular Front, with Clément Petitjean

Article published:
As finger pointing and arguing about Biden's fitness to remain the Democratic Party's presidential candidate continued all week here in the US, Great Britain and France made strides toward beating back autocratic and fascist rule in their own national elections. In this episode, Cayden is joined by Clément Petitjean (@clement_petitj), lecturer in English and Anglo-Saxon languages & literatures at Pantheon Sorbonne, University of Paris. Clément wrote for us in advance of last week’s snap elections in France about the emergence of the New Popular Front, and I’m excited to have him join me to debrief that election – and talk a little about what lessons we can glean from it as observers across the pond.
