La vulnérabilité de l’État de droit espagnol dans le contexte de revendication indépendantiste catalane

Abstract : While trying to limit the effects of a new attempt at catalunian independence, the Spanish government has renewed the legal tools to fight the assaults against State’s stability. The legal mechanisms that have been used to prevent the selfdetermination referendum of 1 october 2017 and to cancel the actions declaring Catalunya’s independence have not softened the catalunian executive and legislative institutions. As a result the Spanish rule of law appears weakened. Since traditional mechanisms which protect the rule of law (i.e. the control of the statutes and constitutional control) have been challenged by catalunian authorities, the Spanish government has resorted to using an exceptional constitutional instrument : article 155 of the Spanish Constitution. But the possible interprÉtations and applications of this article lead to fear a weakening of the rule of law. Not to mention that the use of article 155 does not remove the reasons which caused the severance between pro and anti independence supporters.
