As the influence of the French language declines and some turn to English, what is the place of France and La Francophonie in Africa?

The week before the Soummet de la Francophonie, Abdou Diouf, Secretary-General of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie – a body also known as La Francophonie and which is comprised of countries in which French is widely spoken – outlined his vision for French-speaking Africa.

Africa, he said, was “the future” of La Francophonie: “According to our studies, by 2050 there will be 715 million French speakers in the world, of which 85% will be African”. The leaders at the October 12-14 conference in Kinshasa appeared to agree with this vision, and decided to make Africa’s participation in La Francophonie a priority.

Recent events, however, point to a Francophonie in crisis. French-African relations under France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy were, from an African perspective, shambolic. Yet, especially given the increasing influence of other languages around the continent, Diouf envisions a more cooperative and symbiotic Francophone world – one that does not centre on France, but rather respects the fact that a large group of countries share a language and values.

After 32 years of la Francophonie struggling to be relevant, is it in fact time for French-speaking African nations to start writing their political narratives in a different language?
