Constitutional Enchantment and Disenchantment under the Fifth Republic

Since 1789, our constitutional history has been dominated by an illusion
which can be expressed in Austin’s famous title : How to do things with
words. It has led to a succession of enthusiasms and disappointments of
which the Fifth Republic is an instructive digest. This experience has
been first a lesson in constitutional realism which has highlighted the
political nature of the law enacted in texts together with the limits of
an exclusively juridical approach. Conversely, while the introduction
of judicial review has reinforced the rule of law, its implementation has
also revealed a number of unintended negative effects such as the multiplication
of revisions and the trivialization of the Constitution, now
accentuated by the domination of the European order.
