Journalist and author Nabila Ramdani will speak about the chaos in France.

France is creaking at the seams. Growing socio-political inequality, constant threats from far-right movements, and a lack of social and economic mobility characterize the country. The instability in French society leads to major popular movements protesting against the authorities and making headlines worldwide.

This is the backdrop for Nabila Ramdani's latest book, "Fixing France: How to repair a Broken Republic," where she provides both diagnosis and prescription for France. Ramdani is an author and award-winning journalist. With her French-Algerian background and upbringing in a neglected suburb of Paris, she views French society from a minority perspective.

Associate Professor in History and head of the history section at the Department of Cultural Studies and Languages at UiS, David-Alexandre Wagner, has devoted a significant portion of his academic career to French history and society. He will join the panel.

The conversation will be moderated by Jonas Fossli Gjersø, Pssociate professor in History at the Faculty of Arts and Education UiS.

The event is free of charge and open for anyone interested, no sign up needed.

Breakfast will be served.

Language: English.
