In Thrall to Political Change

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the relationship between the police and the military in France, with particular emphasis on implications for civil rights, democratic control, and the supremacy of civilian authorities. It begins with an overview of the cooperation between civilian police and the army in the recruitment of personnel and in some of its practices during the Third Republic. It then considers the overlap between police and military in countering external threats such as espionage, subversion, and terrorism. It also explores paramilitary policing, the survival of a gendarmerie with a military status, and police involvement in matters of national security.

Keywords:   police, military, France, army, espionage, subversion, terrorism, paramilitary policing, gendarmerie, national security
