Lettre de France
Alain Caille pages -


Alain Caille, together with Jean-Pierre Le Coff, wrote a now-famous tract on the December 1995 uprising of trade unionists. It was called ‘Le Tournant de Decernbre’ and Caille’s part bore the title ‘Vers un nouveau contrat social?’ (‘Towards a new social contract?’) He takes a step further in this analysis of the situation almost nine months into the socialist regime headed by Lionel Jospin. Caille does not see any bold steps on the part of Jospin’s government to alleviate the precarious situation of large sections of French society. If a new social contract is to come into being, he argues, then the initiative for the whole process must of necessity come from below, where the energy for social justice resides. Caille’s analysis of France is evidently quite translatable to the general conditions of the EU area.
