The challenge for French president-elect Hollande

François Hollande will be France's next president. What does this mean for the country, the euro and a viable Europe?  In an article published in Le Monde Diplomatique, Europe Center Associate Director Roland Hsu writes that in order to address unemployment and government debt, Hollande's administration must first figure out "how to restore trust and win effective cooperation from organized labor, industry, the international investment community, immigrant community leaders, and also the far right." 

Next up on Hollande's agenda: the NATO Summit being held in Chicago on May 20-21.
