French local elections
1 July 2021

Dr Françoise Boucek, Visiting Research Fellow at Queen Mary University of London was interviewed by Polish public broadcaster TVP about about the recent French elections.

Things like local transport, vocational training, regional development, don't really affect people's everyday lives."
