Meeting with Mona Ozouf


Summer of 13 Sundays

"Can the national sentiment keep existing today ?"

Meeting on August 14, at 3PM

"What were, what keep being the threats that, in democratic societies influence the existence of a national sentiment to the point of having us believe, if not to his disappearance, at least to its alteration ?
And, despite everything, do we have reasons to believe in the resistance of this sentiment, even in its revitalisation ?

Difficult questions, but those affect every one of us."
