Global Macron

Log-in for full text

From the very beginning of his mandate, Macron has been more than a traditional French foreign policy president; he is representative of a global Macron brand, admired elsewhere, a model of youthful, reformist and intentional political leadership. Macron symbolises renewal on the international scene, as well as domestically, being the most prominent of a new generation of world leaders including Canada’s Justin Trudeau. The generational effect has spilled over from domestic to foreign policy, inspiring the young president to enter into a world dialogue with other young people. Finally, Macron also stands apart from his predecessors insofar as celebrity politics has spilled over into the international sphere, with Brigitte Macron a key part of the presidential toolkit. Are domestic styles and remedies transferable to the European and international scene? The first year of Macron’s presidency was rather inconclusive in this respect.
