Pierre Laroque and the Welfare State in Post-war France

Oxford University Press

During the twenties, Pierre Laroque studied at the Faculty of Law of the University of Paris and the École Libre des Sciences Politiques. It was during this period that he became interested in administrative law, a discipline which was concerned with the changing role of the state in early 20th century France. Academic jurists such as Maurice Hauriou and Léon Duguit influenced French public law during this period, as was illustrated by the rise of the institutionnalist and public service schools of administrative law. Pierre Laroque was influenced by their writings, as was demonstrated by his various legal writings, and it explained the development of is conception of state and society, namely his support for a state interventionism which was mitigated by administrative decentralisation, his concern for the promotion of social solidarity through the encouragement of public participation in the management of public services. These principles would explain his support for the corporatist management of industrial relations, a policy which he believed could address the ineffectiveness of existing collective bargaining legislation by enforcing disciplinary constraints upon the respective parties. Most importantly, the corporation would empower the working class and promote the development of a new climate of social solidarity in a society which had been characterised by the permanence of industrial strife.
