Why Do the French Leave France?

Lecture Series

December 2, 2013

7:30 - 8:30pm

Home Rome

The French Club will be hosting prominent French député (member of the National Assembly) Frédéric Lefebvre in conversation with WBEZ journalist and immigration expert Alexandra Salomon to discuss the topic "Why do the French Leave France?" Under this wide umbrella, our speakers will explore many of the fascinating but critical social and fiscal issues that have been motivating recent French emigration.


Frédéric Lefebvre has been involved in French politics for thirty years, and now represents French citizens living in North America. He is a very close ally of former president Nicolas Sarkozy and has deep knowledge of the French political world.


Free and open to the public.


Presented by the Global Voices Lecture Series and the University of Chicago French Club.
