The French Double Executive and the Experience of Cohabitation
Jean V. Poulard examines political cohabitation in France between 1986 and 1988. He argues that this experience of two political opponents sharing the French dual executive - president and prime minister - did not produce the predicted constitutional crisis and indeed that cohabitation has demonstrated the resilience of the French Constitution of 1958.
