The constitution of France : a contextual analysis by Sophie Boyron( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and French and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The centrepiece of this work is the French Constitution of 1958, portrayed by the author as an innovative hybrid construct whose arrival brought the constitutional stability that had eluded France for centuries. But the creation of the 1958 Constitution was not an isolated act; it represents part of an evolutionary process which continues to this day. Even though it is codified, the constitution of the Fifth Republic has evolved so markedly that some commentators have dubbed the present institutional balance the 'Sixth Republic'. It is this dynamic of the constitution which this book seeks to explain. At the same time the book shows how the French constitution has not developed in isolation, but reflects to some extent the global movement of ideas, ideas which sometimes challenge the very foundations of the 1958 Constitution"--Page 4 of cover
The "New" French Constitution and the European Union by Sophie Boyron( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: For a long time, French constitutional law did not appear to concern itself unduly with the European Communities and the process of European integration: the French Constitution did not contain any reference to the European Communities and the Conseil constitutionnel had little involvement with international treaties and their enforcement as a result of an early decision. However, the ratification of the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 triggered a process of deep constitutional change in France. Since then, the text of the French Constitution has been repeatedly amended to respond to the quickening pace of European integration. Furthermore, the Conseil constitutionnel has totally transformed its control of the constitutionality of international treaties. An assessment of these constitutional changes seems opportune at this juncture. More specifically, an investigation into the manner in which the French constitution reacted to the changing European Union helps cast some light on the impact of European integration on national constitutions
Maastricht and the codecision procedure : a success story by Sophie Boyron( )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Treaty on European Union created the codecision procedure of decision-making process. This was to increase the role and the powers of the European Parliament. However, the procedure set out in a new Article 189b of the EC Treaty was condemned by most commentators on the Treaty: it was said to be complex, confusing and completely lacking in transparency. The procedure was also accused of giving purely negative powers to the European Parliament. This article looks at how Article 189b has entered into force: first, it provides an in-depth legal study of Article 189b; second, it analyses its working in practice; and, lastly, it proposes changes and reforms which might usefully be made at the Inter-Governmental Conference of 1996.--SCAD summary

The Conseil constitutionnel and the European union( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Treaty of Maastricht contains provisions that were incompatible with the French Constitution; the latter had thus to be amended before ratification could proceed. The Constitution was duly amended following the opinion expressed by the Conseil Constitutionnel. The author focuses on one aspect of the Conseil's opinion, namely the idea of a European Union not being incompatible with the definition of national sovereignty as it is found in the French Constitution. By doing so, the Conseil changed its original position, which had been articulated in 1976. However, the author concludes that the Conseil is still far behind constitutional entities in other EC states in accepting the political nature of the European Communities.--SCAD summary
In the name of European Law : the metric martyrs case by Sophie Boyron( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Divisional Court's decision in the case of the metric martyrs has received widespread media coverage due to the sensitivity of the issues raised. However, beyond the media attention, the decision is of particular interest to constitutional and European lawyers. Laws L.J. uses this case as an opportunity to reiterate in his judgment a number of ideas. Concerned with the situation in constitutional law where theory and practice are moving further and further apart, Laws L.J. is attempting to build a new theoretical framework so as to accommodate the constitutional changes that are taking place in both the British and the European constitutional arena."--Editor

L'affaire Factortame : droit communautaire contre droit public anglais( )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Etude approfondie de l'affaire Factortame. Ce litige a fait l'objet de trois décisions de justice en Angleterre et a justifié trois saisines de la Cour de justice des CE sur différents points de droit communautaire. L'article commence par présenter les tenants et aboutissants des nombreuses décisions. Ensuite, il étudie les conséquences que ces décisions pourraient avoir en droit interne anglais: au niveau de la souveraineté du Parlement telle qu'elle est prévue dans la Constitution britannique et au niveau du droit administratif concernant l'interdiction de faire des injonctions à la Couronne et la responsabilité du fait des lois. En conclusion, il se demande si la décision de la Cour de justice des CE ne révèle pas une lacune dans le droit européen en matière d'abus de pouvoir.--SCAD summary
