The main objective of this research is to document and analyze French means put at the United Nations (UN) in order to keep a political and economic bond with its former colonies, which emancipated mainly during the late 1950s and early 1960s. This study focuses on precise aspects of French diplomacy. It seeks to capture the elements of continuity and rupture present before and during the decolonization process within the relations that France kept with these territories. To examine this specific issue, the present analysis is centered on the actions of the French representatives at the UN’s Expanded Programme of Technical Assistance. One of our main question is whether or not French representatives at the UN lobbied in a way that favoured their former colonies after their accession to independence and how these manoeuvers did manifest itself.
