British Conservatives in Paris

Our brief is to further the aims of the British Conservative Party and to provide a forum for Conservative Party supporters.

Our political and social events involving British politicians enable our members to debate political issues and meet visiting British and sometimes French parliamentarians. We represent members' views to the Party and we encourage qualified British subjects to register to vote in the UK, while campaigning vigorously for an extension of this limited right to vote.

Franco-British Connections

FB-Connections’ philosophy is to encourage and help students to develop their own projects. We view student-led events as complementary to the regular course-based projects. Students are often not aware of their potential to organise important and mutually beneficial events with other universities; this is where the FB-Connections strives to act as a catalyst, by putting students in touch with our alumni. The Franco British Young Leader programme was incubated by us back in 2015.
