Austrian Freedom Party

Host talks to Dominique Moisi, Deputy Director of the French Institute for International Relations, about the European Union and Austria's new coalition government, which includes Joerg Haider's far-right Freedom Party. Haider's participation in the coalition is an embarrassment to the EU. Individual member countries have been uncertain about how to express their opposition, and the EU, as a collective, hasn't decided what, if any, sanctions to impose against Austria.
