France’s G20/G8 Presidency: Impact on President Sarkozy’s Foreign and Domestic Image
French president Nicolas Sarkozy, who is about to push his ambitious G20/G8 agenda and pledges an attempt to reshuffle the world economic order, will try to portray France and himself as compassionate opponents of the global economic imbalance. His strategy, based on winning both international and domestic support, while involving his potential counter-candidate, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, in a risky debate, can bring some results, but also bears the risk of confrontation between France and the European Commission.
