Speech on Europe by the President of the French Republic (Paris, 25 April 2024)

Seven years after his Sorbonne speech, French President Emmanuel Macron delivered a second speech on Europe in the auditorium of Sorbonne University on 25 April 2024.

To continue to move towards a more sovereign and more powerful Europe and to carry out these major transitions, President Macron set out his main focuses for the future of Europe with a view to adopting a new strategic agenda for the European Union for the period 2024-2029.

He made three observations:

  • In geopolitical and security terms, Europe must address the widespread rearmament of the world,
  • In economic terms, Europe’s economic model could fall behind global competitors,
  • In cultural and intellectual terms, our democratic, humanist and liberal model is being challenged.
