Marie-Hélène Caillol: “They destroyed the EU” (interview by la Vanguardia, 30/12/2016)Marie-Hélène Caillol: “Ils ont détruit l’UE” (interview dans la Vanguardia, 30/12/2016)

Among all the think tanks in the world, LEAP (Laboratoire Européen d’Anticipation Politique) is truly a rare bird: it is independent. Hence its heterodoxy and its interest. In 1998, this think tank predicted the return of the “grandchildren of Hitler, Franco, Mussolini and Petain” in Europe; in 2006 it predicted the crisis of the subprimes; it has also anticipated the collapse of the European Union in case its democratisation does not happen. Founded in 1997 by Franck Biancheri, a European political scientist (1961-2012), LEAP is headquartered in Paris, having Marie-Hélène Caillol as president.

The Association of Friends of Franck Biancheri is proud to share with you the interview of Marie-Hélène Caillol (President of LEAP and of the AAFB), conducted by , correspondent in Paris for LA VANGUARDIA.

Dans l’univers des think tanks, LEAP (Laboratoire Européen d’Anticipation Politique) est un oiseau rare: il est indépendant. D’où son hétérodoxie et son intérêt. En 1998 le think tank a anticipé le retour au vieux continent des “petits-fils d’Hitler, Franco, Mussolini et Petain”, en 2006 il a prédit la crise des subprimes et depuis de nombreuses années LEAP annonce l’échec de l’Union Européenne si elle ne se démocratise pas. Fondé en 1997 par le politologue européen Franck Biancheri (1961-2012), le LEAP a son siège à Paris. Marie-Hélène Caillol en est la présidente.

L’Association des Amis de Franck Biancheri est fière de partager avec vous l’interview de Marie-Hélène Caillol (Présidente du LEAP et de l’AAFB), réalisée par , correspondant à Paris de LA VANGUARDIA.
