NATALISM" AND "POPULATIONNISM" IN FRANCE : REMANENCE AND TRANSITIONS OF THE IDEOLOGIES
HERVE LE BRAS
This chapter examines how the approach to demographic problems in France has always been influenced, according to the political and economic context, either by the "populationnist" doctrine, which believes that the population of the country should be all the time larger thanks to migratory inputs, or by the "natalist" one, that presupposes that natality should be stimulated in order to increase the country's population. These are the two faces of a single, remanent authoritarian ideology.
