This article uses a comparative approach to explore privatization and its consequences on public law values. It discusses the French model for protecting these values, which limits the scope of privatization and applies a legal regime within which public law norms play an active role. While it does not suggest that this model can or should be applied in the United States, it does express that the French experience can enrich American debates on the subject.
