L’AFP, une entreprise unique, des origines à l’histoire de son statut d’exception, 1832-2015

Abstract : This thesis focuses on Agence France-Presse (AFP), the leading news agency in France and one of the third largest in the world. The aim is to look at how AFP -- which has neither capital nor shareholders, which is subject to the contradictory rationales of politics, commerce and journalism, and which has always been close to the state public power, has been able at the same time to develop and grow, becoming a reference for media from around the world, with a presence on all continents and representing France and the French language across the globe.“AFP is a global news agency delivering fast, accurate, in-depth coverage of the events shaping our world from conflicts to politics, economics, sports, entertainment and the latest breakthroughs in health, science and technology. With 2,400 staff spread across almost every country, AFP covers the world 24 hours a day in six languages. AFP delivers the news in video, text, photos, multimedia and graphics to a wide range of customers including newspapers and magazines, radio and TV channels, web sites and portals, mobile operators, corporate clients as well as public institutions.”
