French Scientific and Cultural Diplomacy

Excerpt

A philosopher must undertake three journeys: first the encyclo
paedic journey, second a journey around the world (a philosopher
who would not have seen the oceans, the poles and the equator
would ignore the world). The third journey is one amongst
mankind … This third journey goes two ways: one has to have
friends everywhere, have talks with all, and one has to journey
within the various social classes.

(Interview with Michel Serres, June 2003)

French cultural and Scientific initiatives are very topical, judging by the number of parliamentary reports and studies, as well as recent announcements by government on their organization and future.

Reports and Opinions on the Foreign Activities of the French Government

During the last decade or so, several parliamentary reports have highlighted the themes of French cultural and Scientific influence, from Patrick Bloche, Le désir de France: la présence internationale de la France et la francophonie dans la société de l’information: rapport au Premier ministre (1999) to François Rochebloine and Geneviève Colot, Rapport d’information sur ‘le rayonnement de la France par l’enseignement et la culture’ (2010).
