Les programmes de l'Union européenne vers les sociétés civiles africaines. Idéologie de la transparence et hyperprocéduralité


  • Christophe Courtin


The Cotonou Agreements bring civil actors to the fore in development programs carried out with European Development Funds. Although the concept of civil society is equivocal, the way programs aiming to strengthen civil society actors are developed and managed, without an in-depth and political reflection about the nature of the social processes in force in the countries concerned, means that they cannot attain objectives that aim to consider civil society actors as rightful and independent actors.
