Summary/Abstract: Created in 1958 by Georges Gurvitch and Henri Janne to resist the domination of the American sociology, the international association of the sociologists of French-speaking represents the third international association of sociology today. At first, this article looks back to the circumstances of its foundation and to the stake in French as working language in international congresses to try then to establish the characteristics of this French-speaking network of the sociology in the time and the space. It examines its policy of membership, the places of its congresses and its themes but also the composition of its executive offices. So, since the 1980s, the sociologists of Maghreb and Middle East, Black Africa and Eastern Europe became a little more visible but the French-speaking network remains always dominated by France and other founding countries (Belgium, Canada and Switzerland). Finally, the world of the AISLF appears as “small world” nevertheless very necessary for the sociological plurality and its dynamism.
