UK and international media
Dr Francoise Boucek and Dr Rainbow Murray have appeared across a wide range of media this week, commenting on the French presidential elections. Dr Boucek has contributed further analysis to LSE's EUROPP blog, and will appear this Sunday as a 'presenter’s friend' on Al Jazeera English TV, covering the French elections from London. On Thursday, Dr Murray appeared on Voice of Russia radio, discussing the pre-election televised debate between François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy. She suggested that Sarkozy did not appear to have done enough to close the gap in the polls between him and Hollande. Dr Murray has also been a guest on France 24 and the Islam Channel, discussing anti-Muslim rhetoric in the run-up to the elections.
