The Fransaise des Conseils en Affaires Publique (l'AFCAP) is the trade body for French professional lobbyists.

Conventional wisdom suggests that the lobbying industry is very different in France than in Anglofone, or at least Anglo-Saxon countries. The creation of l'AFCAP suggests that the notion of French exceptionalism is probably overstated (in much the same way that in 1979 American sociologist G. William Domhoff 'found' a French Council on Foreign Relations, l'IFRI, when French academics thought no such institution existed).

The organisational structure, membership profile and activities of l'AFCAP will look very familiar to those with even a passing knowledge of lobbying associations in the UK or US, whose principle purpose is to promote self-regulation of lobbying.


The membership of l'AFCAP includes a mix of transnational communication companies such as APCO, Burson Marsteller, Hill & Knowlton and First & 42nd, with local lobbyists, lawyers, and PRs.
