NEW INSTITUTIONALISM
AND FRENCH PUBLIC POLICY ANALYSIS:
MAINTAINING THE EXCEPTION CULTURELLE?

Abstract : The concept of new institutionalism has been very fashionable since the mid-1980s. This has been true in continental Europe as elsewhere. However, some authors criticise this trend arguing that many of the results of new institutionalist studies merely re-discover political aspects already revealed by continental European political scientists. By focusing on the case of contemporary French analysis of public policies I suggest that this division is unclear. I assume that, to a large extent, these theories confront the same theoretical challenges independently of their national context and that they tend to deal with them in a comparable way. In so doing, I advocate the introduction of new institutionalist works as a means to establish a consistent transatlantic theoretical framework and re-connect the policy science à la française to the international mainstream.
