France: Marine Le Pen's niece, Marion Marechal opens 'Far Right' Training School for Future Leaders
Politico Europe ^ | Sep 2018 | Maia De La Bume

This month, the doors will open at the Institute of Social, Economic and Political Sciences (ISSEP) in Lyon, France’s third-biggest city. It will, its high-profile backers hope, become a breeding ground for the country’s next generation of conservative thinkers and leaders.

It also marks the return to public life of Marion Maréchal, once the great hope of the French far right, who is the college’s director. She said the idea was to train a new crop of politicians and officials to replace the “visionless” Parisian elite.

She was the youngest member of France’s parliament before stepping away from politics in 2017, and she is more popular than her aunt, National Rally leader Marine Le Pen. A poll by Elabe in June found that right-wing voters think Maréchal would be a better candidate in the 2022 presidential election than Le Pen. She also provides solid southern French support as a counterweight to her aunt’s northern power base.

However, Maréchal is keen to put distance between her new venture and the party she used to represent.

“We are not the school of a party,” she said. “The teaching has a conservative tendency, but what we want is to offer some fresh air.”

On offer is a two-year master’s degree in project management and political science with up to 13 hours of classes per week (at a cost of €5,500 a year) in subjects such as “the art of disinformation,” “history and military strategy,” “Islam and Islamic civilization: analysis of a new global trend,” “conservatism in the U.S.A., China and Russia.”

The college also offers weekend classes (at €900 a year) that aim to train politicians and managers in how to organize a campaign team, “develop a victorious strategy” and “succeed in a written and TV interview.”

From other articles:

"Maréchal secured former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon as an informal adviser, and Raheem Kassam, Bannon’s associate and former editor of the Breitbart U.K. operation, sits on the school’s equivalent of a board of trustees." ~ Washington Post

"She and the school’s rightwing backers... are believed to have chosen Lyon because the FN has long done well in France’s third (largest) city. The city is already home to other rightwing, nationalist or conservative Catholic groups such as Action Française, Génération Identitaire and Sens Commun." ~ The Guardian

They're giving her aunt Marine Le Pen trouble because she criticized Muslim behavior.
