The paper aims to compare how Basque ethnolinguistic movements emerged throughout the Basque Country, and how these movements have been progressively swallowed up by representative institutions according to a convergent process. In Spain, the defence of the Basque language is made by powerful regional governments which collaborate with a dense network of nationalist activists since the 1980s, while in France the ethnolinguistic movement is mainly composed of civil associations that are currently being included into a more general language policy ruled by local political authorities.
