Culture – Diplomatic archives – Visit by Jean-Marc Ayrault to La Courneuve (October 10, 2016)


Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, visited the Diplomatic Archive Center in La Courneuve.

This visit took place ahead of the “Art de la Paix” (“Art of Peace”) exhibition, jointly organized by the Quai d’Orsay and the Petit Palais, which will be held from October 19, 2016, to January 15, 2017, and which will trace the history of France’s international relations from the Middle Ages to the present day. Around a hundred treaties and exceptional documents will be unveiled to the public for the first time and will echo works of art, inviting reflection on France’s pursuit of peace throughout the centuries.

This exhibition also seeks to make the diplomatic archives, which represent the heritage of all French people, accessible to the general public.
