Positive Discrimination and the Equality Principle

In French public law the equality principle and positive discrimination
are fundamentally antagonistic. As a basic element of our legal system, the equality principle postulates the absence of disadvantaged groups,
which would testify to the failure of the system. However the
confrontation between the ideal and reality leads to the taking into
account of objective differences that make it necessary to legally identify
legitimate and necessary differentiations. A qualitative change
occurs when equality becomes a demand : to the notion of equality as a
principle is then added the notion of equality as an objective.
