Plan proposed by President de Gaulle in 1958 for an integrated Community of francophone territories involving France and its overseas dependencies. The Community, that was to supersede the French Union, the post-World War II organizational structure of French overseas territories under the new constitution of the Fourth Republic, was short-lived, all of the autonomous (but non-sovereign) units achieving full independence in 1960 (Kirchherr, 1987).
