LabCitoyen is a program dedicated to major human rights topics. It welcomes to France around sixty socially-engaged young people aged 20 to 26, who love France and are learning French, to learn about these issues through a series of conferences and debates.

Over the course of around ten days, participants from five continents think together about the major topics of international discourse.

The LabCitoyen endeavours to address the major issues of our time by promoting the French language as a tool for debate and action.

The cultural network abroad, based on the recommendations of the Institut français, rigorously selects participants through interviews, competitions and public debates.
