Richard Albert, Boston College Law School

In this latest installment of our video interview series at I-CONnect, I interview François-Xavier Millet on developments in French constitutional law.

In the interview, we discuss the role of the Conseil constitutionnel, the QPC (question prioritaire de constitutionnalité), the relationship between France and its territories as well as between the French Constitution and European Union law, and we close with attention to Charlie Hebdo.

François-Xavier Millet is a Professor of Public Law at the University of the French West Indies and a Research Associate at CAGI-CRPLC (Guadeloupe) and IRDEIC (University of Toulouse). His doctoral thesis on L’Union Européenne et l’Identité Constitutionnelle des Etats-Membres earned the Mauro Cappelletti Prize for the best doctoral thesis at the European University Institute in the field of comparative law as well as 2013 doctoral thesis prize from the Conseil constitutionnel.

The interview runs for 36 minutes, and is available here.
