Law and Power: Rules and Norms at the Heart of Influence


This event is the first in our cycle of meetings “At the heart of influence”.

In a fragmented world, law-based influencing strategies are diversifying and contributing to the power of competing players. This has led law to become a playing field, where we see sparring between one state and another, and between states and other private- and public-sector entities. Multipolarisation, globalisation, interdependence and the rise of digital technologies have changed the forms of influence at work, and consequently the strategies adopted by the various players (states, businesses, NGOs, etc.).

Speakers (in order of appearance):

  • Frédéric Munier, director of the School of Geopolitics at SKEMA Business School, holder of the French “agrégation” in history.
  • Noëlle Lenoir, lawyer, former minister of European Affairs
  • Claude Revel, director of development at SKEMA PUBLIKA, former interministerial delegate for economic intelligence

The debate was moderated by Stéphane Marchand, editor in chief of Pour l’Éco.
