Abstract
Like several other European countries immediately after World War 2, France was targeted by the newly created Australian Department of Immigration as a potential source of migrants. Despite limitations imposed by the French on the promotion of the Australian migration programme throughout the period known as the Trent Glorieuses, in 1971 the Australian Government believed that a target of 10,000 assisted departures from France would be an achievable outcome in the medium term.
