Autour de la « nouvelle laïcité » : entre droit et sciences sociales, dialogue épistémologique avec David Koussens

Abstract : The present contribution is triggered by David Koussens’s suggestion that the expression « new laïcité » may not always be relevant in its ambition to grasp some of the contemporary evolutions of legal regimes of laïcité -in France or in other jurisdictions such as Quebec. As I question Koussens’s hypothesis that legal and sociological analyses of laïcité stem from disitinct epistemological perspectives, I seek to identify the possibility of an external legal analysis within which it may be relevant to use the expression “new laïcité” in order to designate new paradigms of laïcité’s lega regime - such as that under which laïcité generates obligations that no longer solely fall upon public authorities but private individuals as well. I further suggest that Koussens’s questions pertaining to this label might be reframed as an invitation to explore new research pathways in the form of legal meta-analyses that would seek to identify the moments in which legal scholarship (as well as, possibly, other actors) qualify particular legal evolutions in the field of laïcité as “new”.
