Sibylline Podcast – France – Further Unrest Likely Despite Mitigating Measures

December 4, 2018

On 4 December, Prime Minister Édouard Philippe announced a 6-month suspension of the fuel tax and other appeasing measures in response to recent violent unrest in France. We expect this will help reduce the numbers of demonstrators in the streets, though further disruption and elevated property damage risks are likely to endure.

Key points include:

  • Analysis of key actors and agendas in the recent protests
  • Assessment of the government response and its consequences  
  • Implications for the long-term unrest risks in France
