The Carrefour de l'horloge (literally The Clock Crossroad), formerly Club de l'horloge, is a French national conservative association founded in 1974.

Sharing some similarities with the Nouvelle Droite movement, the club centers itself around the values of "liberalism, nationalism and democracy." Its president is Henry de Lesquen.

History[edit]

The Club de l'horloge was founded by Jean-Paul Antoine, Henry de Lesquen, Didier Maupas, and GRECE former members Yvan Blot, Jean-Yves Le Gallou and Bernard Mazin. The Club de l'horloge and the related GRECE, founded by Alain de Benoist, would later clash, although both remained staunchly anti-egalitarian. In 1980 they were described as "Quite a separate phenomenon" from GRECE.[1].

The Carrefour de l'horloge is supportive of uniting the French nationalist forces in one political movement.

The club was renamed Carrefour de l'horloge in 2015.

Lysenko Prize[edit]

Since 1990, the Carrefour de l'horloge awards each year the "Lysenko Prize" to an author or person who "has contributed the most to scientific and historical misinformation, using ideological methods and arguments." Daniel Cohn-Bendit won the prize in 2002 "for his exceptional contribution to the euro campaign," the late John Kenneth Galbraith in 1994 for "his defense of the minimum wage and socialist fight against unemployment."
