The Civil Service Between the “Big Bang” and the Status Quo?

The civil service is the creation of the modern state and democracy.
Neither its particular legal status nor its career system are particular to
France. Indeed the civil service belongs to the weberian system of public
administration which has predominated in all the countries of the
OECD. While there is no French exception, there is however a French
model of civil service, characterized by a stronger sense of identity and
a more centralized organization than in similar countries.
The rigidity of this system is now being strongly criticized in the name
of managerial efficiency. At the same time, the impact of European law
has weakened an edifice all the more fragile that it is more structured
and uniform. All the same, the necessary process of adaptation should
not lead to paint a black picture and to forget that the principles ruling
the civil service and its general status are not incompatible with a
modern, dynamic and efficient management.
