"... les droits et libertés que la constitution garantit" : quiproquo sur la QPC ?

Abstract : The QPC –the new remedy for constitutional review that was introduced in the French constitution in 2008- is now six years old. As it seeks to assess its capacity to fulfill its constitutional mission (ensure the guarantee of constitutional rights), the article looks at one year of QPC litigation in order to understand what this particular procedure has come to mean for those who are its primary users : defendants. By drawing the profile of defendants, looking at the objectives they pursue throughout QPC actions and in what objectives, the article underlines the prevalence of corporate interest holders among defendants, who claim the respect of their economic freedoms (contractual freedom, freedom of enterprise…) in order to attain objectives that often appear only remotely connected to an intuitive understanding of the « rights and liberties that the Constitution guarantees ».
