START MEMO NOM-POST-OBJ:
Because of his increasing influence within the Party, Frederic
Bourcier will certainly be an important opinion maker in
France in the coming years and is potentially a valuable
future contact for the USG. It is our hope that as a result
of his participation in the IV program, Frederic Bourcier will
be inclined to seek out U.S. views on International Affairs
issues and support cooperation with the U.S. both privately
and publicly. As President of the French Network of City
Education Policymakers, he could advocate a more balanced view
of the United States at a time when its image is somewhat
negative in the French media and institutions of learning at
all levels.
END MEMO NOM-POST-OBJ:
START MEMO NOM-POST-RCMD:
Mr. Bourcier should learn about American political
institutions and should meet with elected officials so as to
better understand the U.S. political system. Additionally, he
should meet with high-profile educators and education policy
makers with whom he can exchange views on current trends in
education, especially at the elementary level.

NOMINATING-OFFICER: Eric Beaty
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. Frederic Bourcier has impressed me with his public
speaking ability and his breadth of knowledge of international
educational systems. A youthful member of the French
Socialist Party and chairman of the regional party structure,
Bourcier has a bright future ahead of him. He is also
interested in American history, culture and education and does
not proffer the usual worn clichs that shape many French
politicians' opinions of the United States. When Rennes Mayor
and fellow Socialist Edmond Herve (at the helm of the city
since 1977) steps down in the next few years, he is likely to
handpick Bourcier to succeed him.
At 33 years of age, Bourcier already has the political
expertise and connections that he will need to become a
leading light in the French Socialist Party and perhaps a
Minister in a future Socialist French government. By his own
admission, however, he does not possess an in-depth view of
U.S. institutions, politics and culture. An I.V. program at
this early stage in his career will make him more receptive to
American thinking or issues of mutual interest.
