This category is for administrative regions of France. France is administratively divided into 18 administrative regions: 13 of these are in metropolitan France (one of them, Corse, is on the island of Corsica, although strictly speaking Corse is in fact a “territorial collectivity”, not a région, but is referred to as a région in common speech), 5 are overseas. Régions are further subdivided into départements. All other overseas collectivities are not grouped or subdivided into régions or départements and have their own local administrative system.

  • Since 2016, 7 new metropolitan French regions are replacing 16 former ones, and 6 are unchanged. The 7 new regions have been officialized but their names are provisional. They may still adopt new names by completing their creation project before July 2016 (in which they will choose their capital). For now only Centre (whose borders have not changed) has already adopted a new name, already effective since 1 January 2015.
  • The 5 overseas regions (which are also departements) have not changed.
