Foundations in France


  • Archambault, E.


This paper shows that the French government, whatever its form, has fighted foundations since the Ancien Régime. As a consequence of this repression, the legal status of foundation is still in the first phases of implementation. Then a profile of foundations is sketched, highlighting that the foundation sector is less developed in France than elsewhere in Europe ; moreover it is growing very slowly.
