Francois Delattre
Ambassador of France to the United States

François Delattre was appointed Ambassador of France to the United States in February 2011, following three years as Ambassador of France to Canada (2008-2011), four years as French Consul General in New York (2004-2008), two years as Deputy Director of the French Foreign Minister’s Office (2002-2004) and four years as Press and Communications Director at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. (1998-2002).

As a member of President Jacques Chirac’s Foreign Policy Team (1995-1998), François Delattre was responsible for European and trans-Atlantic defence and security issues and managing the Bosnian crisis. He had previously advised Foreign Minister Alain Juppé in his cabinet on these same issues (1993-1995) following two years with the Strategic, Security and Disarmament Department of the French Foreign Ministry (1991-1993). François Delattre has also been posted in Bonn at the French Embassy in Germany (1989-1991), where he was in charge of environmental issues and the economic consequences of Germany’s unification.

François Delattre holds a degree in international law and is a graduate of Sciences Po and ENA.





Created in the fall 2002, the Alliance Program is a non-profit transatlantic joint-venture between Columbia University and three French prestigious institutions, The École Polytechnique, Sciences Po and the Université of Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne.


Alliance is an innovative program whose aim is to initiate and accompany new initiatives in the fields of education cooperation, research collaboration, and policy outreach. Over the last four years the Alliance’s scope of activities have included the organization of numerous academic conferences both in Paris and in New York, the setting up of international multidisciplinary research teams, and the creation of joint-courses and curricula targeting the students of its founding partners.
