Summary
The fonds comprises material on the federalist movements that flourished starting 1944 which was based on the idea that social groups or communities could freely organise into a federation and be represented before the State. To this end, they considered it necessary to reform the country's structure. In addition, they aimed at establishing an international federated order in which "the various countries must articulate their complementary diversities under the arbitration of a common political authority". In October 1944 the "Fédération" was founded in Paris. While preserving its own status, the Fédération joined the Union of European Federalists (UEF) formed in 1946. Under the authority of its leaders the Fédération established a series of related but autonomous federal organizations: the French Federalist Movement, the Council of European Municipalities. Rhone-Alpes became one of the most active regional centers of the Fédération. In 1946, J. Barascud created a group in Lyon and in December 1948 Gordiani gave his support to establish the Lyon Federalist Union. Due to the lack of dynamism in the Center of Paris, the Fédération / Rhone-Alps began to establish contacts with local activists of the European Supra-national Federalist Movement (MFE) created in 1959 (from which the Fédération separated in 1957 to join the new Action Européenne Fédéraliste (AEF). The process resulted in the creation of a new European Federalists Union (UEF) at regional level in April 1969, in anticipation of an international federalist reunification, which was accomplished in April 1973
Biographical or historical data
In December 1948 Albert-Marie Gordiani participated in the foundation of the Union of Federalists Lyon (ULF) affiliated to the Fédération, and later was head of its steering committee. The group then took the name of the Union européenne des fédéralistes Rhône-Alpes. He later assumed various positions in committees devoted to defending local and regional freedoms, in the regional branch of the Council of European Municipalities, in the Inter-regional Committee Rhone-Alpes / Piedmont and in the Centre régional des échanges internationaux Rhône-Alpes (CREI) created in 1955 to provide young workers with direct knowledge of the working conditions of their neighbours, in line with the spirit of Europe. The UEF Rhône-Alpes established contacts within the European Federalist Movement and helped to create the new Union of European Federalists (UEF)
