WPF’s Bridget Conley and research fellow, Emma Soubrier, discuss issues from Dr. Soubier’s research paper, “Weaponized storytelling à la française: Demystifying France’s narratives around its arms export policies,” (World Peace Foundation, April 1, 2022). Dr. Conley asks about how Dr. Soubrier’s previous positions within the French government and working with Airbus impact her investigation of sales to conflict zones. They also discuss how to understand the role armed conflict plays in French export licensing decisions, what oversight role Parliament should play, and implications of her research for today’s war in Ukraine.
