  1. Introduction
  2. Review
  3. Conclusion

"Retirement home for the preferred policy", "Anomaly among the democracies", this is how Christmas Mamere and Lionel Jospin, respectively, have defined the French Senate.

These two glaring criticisms of the upper house of French Parliament are a strange echo in the American institution that bears the same name.

Indeed, the American Senate continues more and more like the holder of a central place in the institutional architecture of the United States.

Do the American Senate and the French Senate have like only common point in their denomination? Or, more generally, which are their similarities and their differences?

The first similarity is that both the countries have two chambers of a bicameral legislative system. However, their differences are manifold because their status, role and weight are largely uneven.

The French Senate and the U.S. Senate are located in the heart of the French and American institutional systems, respectively. They represent one of the two chambers of the legislature. They have other functions and powers consistent as representative of the legislature in a democracy and separation of powers.
