Born March 12, 1945 in Toulon, a graduate of law in 1969 and a doctor of state in law from Panthéon-Assas Paris II University in 1976, Claude Goasguen was an outstanding jurist. A lawyer at the Paris Court of Appeal, he had a unique temperament.
Passionate, he was Lecturer at PARIS XIII University, Dean of the Faculty of Law and Political Science of Paris XIII, Inspector General of National Education, Rector of Academy, Director of CNED, and Lecturer at H.E.C.
Former mayor of the 16th arrondissement of Paris, Claude Goasguen was a man of field, proximity and who will always work to preserve the singularity and the beauty of the city of Paris. He also served France as Minister of State Reform, Decentralization and Citizenship under the Chairmanship of Jacques Chirac.
MP for the 14th district of Paris, Claude Goasguen has never ceased to defend his ideas with courage. Tireless political fighter, Claude Goasguen fought many battles. We will remember his entire commitment to Eastern Christians and his steadfast struggle against anti-Semitism.
Claude Goasguen was Knight of the National Order of the Legion of Honor, Knight of the National Order of Merit and Knight in the Order of Academic Palms. Married, he had two children.
Those who have had the chance to work with him, throughout his life, keep an imperishable memory of it, of tenacity, of convictions, of great culture and with France pegged to the body.
The Republicans wish today to send their sincere condolences to his family, relatives and people he has served so much.
Claude Goasguen will remain a major figure in our political family and a great voice in the National Assembly.
