‘The Popular Front and Gaullist France Libre: Experimental Routes to Constitutional Serfdom?’

Nicolas Roussellier

How can Gaullism and the French Popular Front be incorporated into the narrative of French constitutional history?

At this event on 11 November 2014 Nicolas Roussellier (Sciences Po, Paris) talked about France's transition from parliamentary to presidential democracy from the Third to the Fifth Republic, and in particular highlighted the contributions of the Popular Front government and Charles de Gaulle's Free French Government to this transition.

The event was organised by the Constitutional Studies Programme, Department of Politics and International Relations, and co-sponsored by Maison Française, Oxford, and the Oxford-Sciences Po Research Group (OXPO).
