In 2007, at the time of the previous presidential election, the revitalization of France’s foreign policy was one of the issues tackled by the political debates, even though it was marginally. In 2012, things are different, the nostalgia for greatness and the “souci du monde” are submerged by domestic issues. Nonetheless, Politics cannot be ignored. The diplomatic and strategic stakes are not as visible and obvious as those domestics issues but they are most important. Therefore, we shall study the share of continuity and discontinuity in France’s foreign policy in the pros-pect of a possible political change at the head of the State.
