La gouvernance financière de la Sécurité sociale : étude comparée entre la France et le Royaume-Uni

Abstract : The thesis in law with the title “The governance of social security finance: a comparative study between France and the United Kingdom” is a comparative approach of the evolutions in the management of resources and expenses of social security in the French and British social security systems. Under examination is the introduction of an “active financial governance” of social security systems, in practice and in the level of theory, that constitutes a common, despite the fact that it is not identical, tendency towards the budgetary liberalization of social security finance in the two countries examined. The reinterpretation of the role et the techniques of the governance of social security finance is a consequence of the changing role and techniques of social policies that require the parallel analysis of the budgetary policies and the social policies in France and the United Kingdom. What is observed in the context of this analysis is that the introduction of principles and values of “governance” is a part of global, coherent and systemic tendency towards the liberalization of social security financial governance: towards the relegitimization of its management by an approach of the managerial efficiency that is inspired by corporate management and that diffuses the principles of activation, responsabilization, individualization and flexibility. These principles are found to be incompatible with the socialising function of social security and they lead to the gradual construction of original social security models that, nevertheless, belong to a common path.
