The Young French Right certainly has its place in a collective reflection devoted to the genealogies of anti-democracy in the European crisis of the 1930s. This contribution first lays the groundwork for a historiographic definition of the Young Right: the Young French Right makes reference to some of the so-called «nonconformists of the 1930s,» alongside groups such as «l'Ordre nouveau» or «Esprit.» More precisely, we may see the Young Right as referring to the spiritualist side of the «relèves» opposed to the realists. Like any historical object, the Young Right must be apprehended chronologically. This article insists upon the importance of the 1920s as a founding moment, even though it is the onset of the crisis of the 1930s that launched the Young Right into orbit. Lastly, this contribution evokes the relations of this Young Right with corporatism and fascism, to show how they brought about important reconfigurations within it.
