L’Agora plays host to Alain Juppé on the Lille campus

Written on 14 October 2013.

The domestic and international political scenes are currently experiencing profound crises of various sorts. Syria, the UMP and Europe are burning issues. This talk, with its interactive format, was an opportunity for all to speak up and ask questions of the day’s speaker.

"We must continue to defend our values, democracy and human rights, in Europe and beyond. France must adapt to a new world, the world of the future," said Juppé.

Alain Juppé is a French politician born in 1945. After an agrégation de lettres classiques at the École Normale Supérieure, he enrolled at the Institut d’études politiques in 1964 and he graduated from the École nationale d’administration in 1972. His political career began in Paris alongside Jacques Chirac, where he was in municipal government from 1983 to 1985. He has been budget minister, secretary-general of the Rassemblement pour la République, minister of foreign affairs and then named prime minister by French President Jacques Chirac. He is also active in local and regional politics—he is currently mayor of Bordeaux—and until 2012 he held several ministerial positions in Nicolas Sarkozy’s administration.
