Economic and Environmental Interest Groups in the new French Law on Agriculture’s Future: a change of course to prepare the rise of sustainable agriculture[Research paper] by Marine d'Allancé


Marine d'Allancé graduated from ESCP-Europe Business School in 2014 and is a former student of the Alternative Management third year specialization program in HEC

The French Bill on Agriculture’s Future was submitted by the government in November 2013, echoing a two-decades-old process of integration of environmental stakes to public policy. One of the goals of this law is to promote the conciliation of economic, social and environmental performance on farms, and for this matter, a new structure is created: the Economic and Environmental Interest Groups (GIEE, in French). In this research paper, we have chosen to study the direction change promoted by the new public policy tool, for the agro-ecologic practice it promotes and its collective, systemic and upward dimensions differs widely from traditional agriculture policy orientation. We will firstly investigate the conditions of the emergence of the new law and will proceed by analyzing the legislative work around the creation of the Economic and Environmental Interest Groups. Ultimately, we will conduct the analysis of the implications of such a development for public policy and State role evolution.
