The National Front (Front national or FN) is an economically protectionist, socially conservative, and nationalist political party in France. The party was founded in 1972 to unify a variety of French nationalist movements of the time. In 1973 the party created a youth movement, the Front national de la jeunesse (FNJ). Jean-Marie Le Pen was the party's first leader and the undisputed centre of the party from its start until his resignation in 2011. While the party struggled as a marginal force for its first ten years, since 1984 it has been unrivaled as the major force of French nationalism.
