In many western legal systems, public law stands at the crossroads. Now a well–established field of law and doctrinal inquiry, public law has nevertheless either lost its self-evident "autonomy" in the continental systems (as in France) or never acquired such a privileged status (UK, and possibly Australia), despite its development. Redefining the boundaries of public law now seems more necessary than ever. This may raise questions as to the status of the core concepts in the field, and a willingness to challenge the very nature of the "publicness" of public law.
