What is it about?
The paper explores how different dimensions of crisis in France have been discussed by key political and socio-economic actors like parties, trade unions, and employer organisation. It argues that there is an underlying trend to change the political economic profile of France, which can be detected by investigating these discourses. This trend to change is contested in France, which helps explain the different crisis symptoms the country has been witnessing over the past decade.
