Charles de Gaulle's influence on contemporary French culture and on France's rejection of genetically modified food
Date of Award
Although the Gaullist movement declined after violent student and worker rebellions in 1968, I propose that de Gaulle's distrust of American policy coupled with his strong belief in French sovereignty continues to influence contemporary France. These two factors are the primary reasons why the French strongly disapprove ofthe production and consumption of genetically modified food not only in their country but also in the entire European Union.
