Thomas Perroud is professor of public law at Panthéon-Assas University. This year he has been visiting professor at the Oxford Institute of European and Comparative Law as well as Bocconi and Rome 3 Universities. He specializes in comparative public law from a political view point. With Jacques Caillosse, Jacques Chevallier, and Danièle Lochak, he has co-edited with Les grands arrêts politiques de la jurisprudence administrative [Landmark political cases of administrative case law] (LGDJ, Coll. Les grandes décisions, 2019). He has been asked by the Robert Schuman Foundation to write a report on the reformation of EU competition law.


This paper aims, on the one hand, at giving a key to understand the contemporary developments of contemporary French administrative law, which has undergone a dramatic change compared to its basic principles set out at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries and, on the other hand, at contributing to a clarification of what neoliberalism actually is. These contemporary developments are illiberal and undemocratic.
