International Press Brief
French Presidential Election
The French presidential elections are taking place in April 23rd. The different political forces are getting ready for the campaign, that is probably going to be very disputed, due to the ideological diversity of the candidates, and the social divisions of a population increasingly discontent. The major candidates that are going to run the first round are François Fillon (UMP), Marine Le Pen (FN), Emmanuel Macron (Independent), Benoît Hamon (PS), Jean-Luc Mélechon (FG), and Yannick Jadot (EELV).
After the escalation of the Syrian conflict and the humanitarian catastrophe in Aleppo, the UN Security Council approved unanimously a resolution that allows the deployment of international observers to monitor the evacuation of civilians from the war zone. This resolution revived the debate over the merits of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine.
