As France prepares to take on the rotating EU Presidency in January, we are dedicating our final #BrusselsCalling media debate of the year to the special challenges that leading EU journalists will face in the six months ahead, given the hurly-burly of the contest for the Elysée in early 2022.

7 Dec 2021

9:30-10:15 AM CET


We are thrilled that Sir Ivan Rogers, who was Permanent Representative of the UK to the EU from 2013 to 2017, will moderate our online panel on December 7 from 9:30 to 10:15 AM CET. An influential participant in the debate on European affairs, Sir Ivan will quiz leading Brussels and Paris correspondents on what to expect from the French presidency. Will it inevitably be overshadowed by the presidential elections? What progress can we realistically expect on the EU’s twin policy priorities, the Green Deal and the digital transformation?
