La France face à la Constitution européenne : un héritage mal assumé

Abstract : This article sheds light on the institutional factors weighing in how French preferences were determined as regards the future of Europe. The French government was obliged to take into account the reformulation of the debate at the Convention and the European Institutional legacy. This institutional rationale took precedence over the French leaders' ambitions for national power, considerations with regard to the effectiveness of the decision-making process and there vision of Europe. It later crippled the debate over the referendum, for responsibility for it was never assumed in positive terms.
