Decentralization

For the first time, the Constitution of the Fifth Republic has given a
jurisdictional sanction to the respect of the constitutional bases of the
legal rights of local authorities. But while the Constitutional Council
has acquired this fundamental role, one may wonder what part it takes
in the elaboration of such rights. It should be noted that while the principle
of the free administration of local authorities emerges from these
constitutional bases, it is not dominant. While it may limit the legislative
branch, it cannot produce its own laws and define itself without
reference to the general constitutional order, and the current growth of
jurisprudence regarding the consequences of the indivisibility of the
Republic and its corollaries imposes a certain legislative uniformity
and limits the reach of this principle. However, to what extent does the
acceleration of current changes, notably in the overseas territories,
adapt itself to this general framework ?
