This paper critically examines France in terms of the issues of cultural diversity and globalization. The author attempts to portray France as a monocultural country that professes to be multicultural. To challenge the French viewpoint of their cultural diversity, the paper points to the control of the Academie Francaise over issues of the French language.

From the Paper:

"Monoculturalism is in the very heart and fabric of French culture-so much so that France is the only country in the world with a central authority, the Acadmie Franaise, whose sole responsibility is to guard the French language from corruption by other languages. (Gray) The Acadmie's secretary Maurice Druon is quoted as saying that "the language of a people is its soul" and Foreign Minister Vedrine has stated that "Our language is like our genetic code." (Gordon)
