France After the Charlie Hebdo Attacks

France After the Charlie Hebdo Attacks Mead, Cope, Weinstein, Haddad & Tertrais weigh in

France has just suffered the most deadly terrorist attacks on its soil in recent history. The French have responded with an impressive show of unity and solidarity, with millions taking to the streets in the largest demonstrations since World War II.

Significant and numerous challenges lie ahead for French leaders: tackling Islamic radicalism and integrating their nation’s Muslim community, protecting its threatened Jewish community, and preventing the rise of the extreme-right National Front. What should be done?

On January 21st at 12:30 pm EST, Hudson Institute was honored to host a discussion about these questions with four experts: Walter Russell Mead, Kenneth R. Weinstein, Jean-Francois Copé, and Bruno Tertrais. Benjamin Haddad moderated the discussion.
