Europe faces severe crisis after crisis: Anemic economic growth, the rise of anti-European sentiment, right and left-wing populism, the Euro and Greek crises, massive immigration, the refugee crisis along with the rise of Islam, Brexit, and Trump. Discredited Brussels institutions, controversial German leadership, and deepening fractures within Europe have precluded solutions. Patrick Chamorel, senior resident at Stanford in Washington, will address whether the new political landscape forged by Brexit, Trump, Merkel, and Marcon can reshape, for better or worse, Europe and transatlantic relations.
Patrick Chamorel is Senior Resident Scholar at Stanford in Washington, where he teaches international and comparative politics. Chamorel has written extensively on U.S. and European politics. His most recent research has focused on US strategic, political, and economic relations with Europe and the EU, American and European political and business elites, the impact of globalization on governments, business and civil society, Euro-skepticism in America, and U.S. and French presidential elections. He is a regular commentator in the international press, radio, and TV.
In addition to Stanford, he has taught at the University of California (Berkeley and Santa Cruz), George Washington University, and Claremont McKenna College where he was the Crown Visiting professor of Government from 2002-05.
In the 1990's, Chamorel was a senior advisor to the French Prime Minister among other advisory roles in the government. He is a graduate of Sciences-Po in Paris where he also earned his Ph.D. in political science. In addition, he holds a Master in Public Law from the University of Paris.
Professor Chamorel's Athenaeum presentation is sponsored by the Salvatori Center at CMC.
