Join the Ash Center for a conversation with Guillaume Liegey MPA 10 and Brune Poirson MPA 17 as they discuss the reinvention of political parties in France following French president Emmanuel Macron’s historic election this year. Liegey, founder of the European political data firm Liegey Muller Pons, worked as a consultant to the Macron campaign. Poirson assumed office this summer as a member of France’s National Assembly from President Macron’s political party En Marche. Liegey and Poirson will explore how En Marche’s “listening campaign” helped turn France’s traditional political dynamic on its head and how other parties and political movements might learn from their success. Ash Center faculty affiliate Marshall Ganz will moderate. Arthur Goldhammer, senior affiliate at the Center for European Studies will serve as respondent.
This event is cosponsored by the Center for Public Leadership, HKS Alumni Relations and Resource Development, and the Center for European Studies.
