Le Partenariat en réanimation bureaucratique

Abstract : [The Partnership on bureaucratic life-support] The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership, established by the Barcelona Declaration in November 1995 in order to channel dialogue and cooperation between the European Union and countries of the Southern Mediterranean shore, is actually more of a virtual than a political discourse, sustained only through the bureaucracy. Due to a lack of shared vision, a basic disinterest on the part of the EU member-states for the matter, and the hybrid nature of the arrangement, it is paradoxically the bureaucratic machines that keep alive an ailing process disconnected form reality and, in fact, widely criticized. It is true, in counterpoint, that the preeminence of bureaucratic and administrative rationales is largely responsible for the deadlock this Partnership, a distorted and empty shell, has experienced.
