Once again, 2016 was marked by attacks: in France, Belgium, Germany, but also throughout the Middle East and even the world. This is also how 2017 started, with an attack in Turkey in a nightclub.
Three political events of unequal importance created the surprise during 2016: the Brexit, the election of Donald Trump, and the election of François Fillon.
Let us bet that 2017 will also bring its share of surprises. It is a new page of history that is being written.
