We promote constructive
dialogue between France and the UK for enhanced future collaboration

The Franco-British Council is an independent organisation based in Paris and London. Our mission is to reflect the wide relationships between the two nations and promote constructive dialogue for enhanced future collaboration.

The Council was founded in 1972 on the joint initiative of President Georges Pompidou and Prime Minister Edward Heath, in a context of a developing Europe and of an increasingly globalised community. Since then, it has dedicated itself to the promotion of a better mutual understanding and the development of joint action through bringing together leading representatives of the worlds of culture, politics, defence, science, education and business.

FRANCO-BRITISH DEFENCE CONFERENCE 2018, 19-20 SEPTEMBER IN LONDON.

A unique opportunity for participants to hear leading guests speak on the state and direction of the Franco-British Defence relationships and engage in discussions on strategic issues such as Intervention, Capability and Acquisition, Influence and the Legal Context.
