Margaux Bouaziz is an associate Professor at the University of Burgundy (France). She specializes in Comparative Constitutional Law, especially US and French Constitutional Law, and History of Political Thought.

She did her studies and PhD at the University Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her doctoral thesis on Article 16 of the Declaration of the Rights of Men and of the Citizen and the History of the Notion of Constitution is a major contribution to the understanding of Eighteenth Century Constitutionalism and of the hidden reactionary and conservative face of Constitutionalism in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century.

In 2019, she expanded her research to US Constitutional. She focuses on the relationship between separation of powers, democracy and fundamental rights, and, through case studies, challenges the assumption that these are separate areas of Constitutional Law: Reproductive Rights and Democracy; Procedural Democracy and Religious Freedom; Emergency Powers of the Executive and Individual Rights.

Before joining University of Burgundy, she was a research and teaching fellow at Sciences Po. She currently teaches at Sciences Po, École Normale Supérieure and the University of Burgundy: Comparative Constitutional Law, Political Institutions and French Constitutional Law.
