The Tea Party Movement: What Impact on U.S. Politics?


In the last year, mainstream Americans have taken part in a series of apparently spontaneous demonstrations, calling for more conservatism, raising against big governement, especially high taxes and the healthcare system overhaul. In reference to the famous revolutionary episode, they call themselves the Tea Party Movement. Insisting on their independence from traditional political parties, are they bound to become a new political force to reckon with?

With Anne-Lorraine Bujon, a distinguished commentator on U.S. policy and society, analyses this new phase in American history. Stu Haugen, Past Chairman, Republican Abroad France; Meredith Gowan Le Goff, Chair, Democrats Abroad France; Gilles Biassette, Journalist, La Croix.

Chaired by Michel Garcin, Chairman of the Directoire, French-American Foundation, France
