More information

The Chevènement family is of Swiss origin, with their original name, Schwennemann, having been gallicized to Chevènement. He was born in Belfort near the Swiss border, speaks German, and studied in Vienna.

Chevènement's idiosyncratic left-wing nationalism has led to comparison with the late British politician Peter Shore, he describes this Eurosceptic and Gaullist position as "republican". He has been Mayor of Belfort from 1983 to 2008 and was a Deputy in the National Assembly from 1973 to 2002.


He joined the French Section of the Workers' International (SFIO) and founded the Center of Socialist Studies, Research and Education (Centre d'études, de recherche et d'éducation socialistes or CERES). The organization constituted the left-wing of the party, and promoted the alliance with the Communist Party.
