La démocratie directe à l'épreuve du temps

On-going Experiments in Direct Democracy
Edited by Marie Bolton and Marie-Elisabeth Baudoin

This volume of essays owes its origins to a conference held on June 1, 2012, at the School of Law and Political Science, Clermont-Ferrand, in Clermont-Ferrand, France, that brought together a group of American and French scholars in a fruitful examination of direct democracy in a variety of contexts and from a variety of viewpoints. The areas under study fell into two categories: First, the United States and more specifically California, as examined by American historians, and second, the European Union, Italy, Switzerland, and France as examined by French legal scholars.  The conference was conducted in both English and French and the essays presented here will keep this format, allowing readers access to the original nuanced and vital language with which these scholars developed and expressed their thinking.

The authors would like to thank the institutions who gave generous support in sponsoring this conference:  Centre d’Histoire "Espaces et Cultures" (CHEC), Université Blaise Pascal / Clermont-Ferrand II and Centre Michel de L’Hospital (CMH), Université d’Auvergne / Clermont-Ferrand I.
