"La centralisation territoriale. Fondements et continuité en droit public français"

Abstract : Decentralization reforms, as extensive as they are, should not be forgotten that this, at least in France, is a policy of the Center, determined in the manner it chooses, when he decides and on a scale that does not challenge its dominance over its territory. So not only decentralization does not replace centralization, but it is even paradoxically its pursuit. "De-centralize" is also "centralize twice". By analyzing the history of the centralization process, its conceptual and legal foundations and its constitutional and statutory recognition, and by the study of decentralization, its definition and implementation in particular since the 70s, but also local cooperation and territorial planning policies which are both complementary and competing with decentralization, will appear a real "centralization complex" apprehending all these territorial policies in consistency which show their final unity.
