A new chapter in the relationship between French Protestants and South Africa: The Colloque l’Afrique du Sud en transition, Paris, 15–16 January, 1993
Early in 1993 an important colloquium, called together by the Federation of Protestants in France, (FPF) in conjunction with DEFAP, the missionary secretariate of the FPF, on South Africa in transition, was held in Paris. The colloquium had a fourfold purpose: to inform the French public on recent developments in South Africa; to explain the difficult problems awaiting solutions in that country; to rebuild contact between churches in South Africa and France; and to identify lessons France, as well as the wider world, may learn from the South African experience. Speakers from both South Africa and France were invited to address the colloquium. In the article some of the views expressed at the colloquium are summarised and evaluated. In an introductory paragraph the role and the influence of Protestants in France today are briefly touched upon.
