As national elections loom in France and Germany in 2017 and as the effects of President Donald Trump’s presidency begin to take hold, debates over European integration, free trade, open borders, and shared fiscal responsibility are intensifying. How will the pendulum swing in two of Europe’s most important countries?

On Friday, April 21, the Brookings Global Economy and Development program and Columbia | SIPA’s Center on Global Economic Governance (CGEG) co-hosted a panel where experts discussed the dynamic interaction of French, German, and U.S. policy choices.
