  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Secularism; Laïcité; Neutrality; Funding; French Legal System.

The distinctive features of the French legal system are set forth in the 1905 law. In particular, articles 1 and 2 have a constitutional relevance, although they do not prevent the development of a system of indirect funding for religious denominations. The principle of laïcité, which is constantly evolving, applies to state schools, public services and public space. This concept of neutrality does not forbid judges or public authorities from supporting - or not - different denominations. In French society the problems related to religious belonging remain constant and pressing concerns.
