This article analyses the emergence of an administrative science in France in the wake of World War II. The birth of this discipline is examined through the history of its founders, a group of comparatists aiming at developing universal administrative principles. The post-war context prompted the creation of checks and balances against administrative power (oversight of the legality of administrative action), and against the powers of nation states (human rights and international organisations). Administrative science and comparative law were meant to rebuild international relations. The history of this discipline highlights a legal project to redefine the role and limits of executive power at the dawn of the construction of a new world order.
