Rule of law and law enforcement in France in the 21st century
Time & Location
About the Event
This meeting will talk about the origin of the 5th Republic, the organisation of the law enforcement, the justice organization. We will explain the shift from the judicial to the administrative justice system and then the police repression against the people living in the « banlieues » (suburb) and the mouvement des gilets jaunes (yellow vest). What does this mean for the recent policing of both the Gilets Jaunes and Black Lives Matter demonstrations?
