This article first describes the place and evolution of the principle "égalité devant les charges public" in Belgian law. It then discusses two recent judgments, Cass. 24 June 2010 and Const. Court n° 55/2012, which significantly increase this principle's importance as a criterion for the compensation of damages caused by a government which has not committed a fault. It further assesses the points of discussion which remain open after the aforementioned judgments.
