The French American friendship is characterized by a fruitful political, cultural and economic dialog. French and American journalists are contributing to this dialog everyday, reporting on our respective countries. We welcomed two internationally recognized reporters: Steven Erlanger from The New York Times and Laure Mandeville from Le Figaro, for a productive discussion on the US media’s coverage of France in the 21st century.

  • Steven Erlanger became the London bureau chief of The New York Times in August 2013, after five years as bureau chief in Paris and, before that, four years as bureau chief in Jerusalem. He has served as Berlin bureau chief, bureau chief for Central Europe and the Balkans, based in Prague, and chief diplomatic correspondent, based in Washington. From 1991 to 1995, he was posted in Moscow, after being Bangkok bureau chief and Southeast Asia correspondent from 1988 to 1991. In New York, he was Culture Editor from 2002 to 2004. Previously, he worked for The Boston Globe. He was European correspondent, based in London, 1983-87, and deputy national and foreign editor. He reported from Eastern Europe, Moscow and revolutionary Iran.
  • Laure Mandeville has been the chief US correspondent for Le Figaro in Washington since January 2009. She joined the foreign desk of Le Figaro in 1989 and spent twenty years covering the post-soviet world (Eastern Europe, Russia, Baltic countries, Caucasus, Ukraine, Central Asia). She was correspondent to Moscow from 1997 to 2000. She also covered Europe, Islam in Europe and transatlantic relations. She is the author of The Russian Army, a Power in Tatters (1994) and The Russian Reconquest (2008).
