Réforme constitutionnelle des finances locales : quels sens donner au principe d'égalité ?


  • Alain Guengant
  • Jean-Michel Josselin


The aim of the article is to consider the implications for local communities of the recent French constitutional reform. As far as distributive justice is concerned, the perspective is entirely renewed since the relations between the central government and the local public sector are now conceived at the constitutional level rather than simply in a legislative framework. The paper intends to shed light on the causes and consequences of this reform, particularly by assessing the various acceptations of equality that may underlie its application.
