103. FIXING FRANCE: HOW TO REPAIR A BROKEN REPUBLIC
Nabila Ramdani
Saturday 29th June 13:15 (60 Min)
Stove Tent by Viking
France―the romanticised, revolutionary land of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity for all―is failing. Reform is urgently needed. Nabila Ramdani is not from the establishment elite: she is a marginalised insider, born and raised in a neglected Paris suburb. With unflinching clarity, she probes the fault lines of her struggling country, exposing the Fifth Republic as an archaic system which emerged from Algeria’s cataclysmic War of Independence. Today, a monarchical President Macron shows little interest in democracy, while a far-right party founded by Nazi collaborators threatens to replace him. Segregation, institutionalised rioting, economic injustice, the debasement of women, a monolithic education system, deep-seated racial and religious discrimination, paramilitary policing, terrorism and extremism, and a duplicitous foreign policy all fuel the growing crisis. Yet Ramdani offers real hope: the broken French Republic can, and must, be fixed.
