French Scientific and Cultural Diplomacy

Philippe Lane

Liverpool University Press

The French diplomatic programme for culture and influence abroad has seen reform into one unified institution having financial autonomy and attached initially to the relevant embassy, strengthening mutual benefits between the networks of Alliances françaises and the Institut français, the rationalization of financing, human resources and strategic control, conforming with geographic priorities. Scientific and academic attractiveness should promote inward exchanges; such cultural and scientific diplomacy aligns the main participants – the Institut français, CampusFrance, the AEFE and the private sector – convergence producing more joint initiatives. The debate of ideas and the status of French enable development in the francophone countries of the South, and the teaching of French in foreign education systems, and in academic and professional training. Research should enhance the academic attractions of France to incorporate French research into the leading international networks, thus responding to globalization, strengthening the influence of France in Europe and the world, and improving financial control and efficiency. Personnel and recruitment policies concern career diplomats, permanent civil service personnel seconded from their home ministries, and personnel recruited locally, and should recognize foreign-based occupations as a professional element of the civil service, developing specializations during a whole career, and devising effective local recruitment policies.
