Actors, networks and associations
In a context of internationalization of exchanges, European integration and instant dissemination of information through digital networks, a decision on the use of the French language – which it concerns education, integration, work or transport – de facto produces effects in a broader set of states or regions.
This is why France has chosen to conduct its language policy in close dialogue with various partners, both at the French-speaking and European level and in Latin.
These “circles of solidarity”, which have distinct scopes and scopes, have as a common denominator to place the policy of French in a dynamic of international consultation.

Approved associations for the promotion of the French language
The Ministry of Culture approves every three years a number of associations to monitor the application of the Law of 4 August 1994 on the use of the French language and to be a civil party in disputes relating to this text. The exercise of this authorization shall make it possible to complete the control action carried out by the competent State departments.
Under the decree of 13 May 2013, four associations currently benefit from this accreditation: the Association francophone d'amitié et de liaison (AFAL), Avenir de la langue française (ALF), Défense de la langue française (DLF) and the French National Committee of the Forum francophone des affaires (FFA).
