In December 2015, the French government unveiled a pack of anti-terrorism measures. It includes adding to the French constitution state-of-emergency laws which allow authorities to detain and search suspects without warrants and stripping dual nationals of the French citizenship if they are convicted of terror offences.

With the exception of the Front National, which firmly supports the proposals, the government was expected to face harsh criticism and opposition during the discussions in the parliament.
