    Bonjour a tous,

    Quelqu'un peut m'expliquer qu'est ce que ça veut dire "conseils régionaux" en anglais?

    Merci :)

    France is administratively divided into 26 regions (régions) :
    22 Metropolitan and 4 overseas.
    regional councils are the elected assemblies of these regions

    (Alsace, Aquitaine, Auvergne, Bourgogne, régions ...conseil régional d'Alsace...)

    The straight-forward word-for-word is "regional councils," but it really depends on the structure of whatever system you're discussing: municipal government, health services, education, etc ... The labels vary greatly from place to place.

    I am doing an essay about parité and I want to use some info from a table named "La représentation des femmes dans les conseils régionaux en France", so I suppose regional councils works, thanks!
