    Le processus de mise en œuvre d’Accords de Partenariat Économiques (APEs) dans lequel l’Union européenne est engagée avec ses anciennes colonies, dont notamment les Caraïbes anglophones, fait l’objet de nombreuses critiques qui soulignent en particulier que les APEs imposent des règles qui vont bien au delà de ce qui est nécessaire afin d’être conforme aux exigences de l’OMC et forcent de nombreux petits pays à entrer dans des relations commerciales réciproques et libéralisées avec des pays avec lesquels ils ne peuvent rivaliser. Un aspect moins abordé concerne le cas des départements français des Caraïbes, la Martinique et la Guadeloupe. En tant que régions à part entière de l’UE, elles ressentent les effets de la politique européenne d’une manière bien différente de leur voisines indépendantes anglophones car elles continuent à bénéficier de marchés protégés et d’importantes subventions. Cet article met en lumière certaines contradictions dans la politique européenne de développement dans les Caraïbes orientales. D’un point de vue théorique, il examine certaines des raisons pour lesquelles ce manque de cohérence existe et ses conséquences sur le discours et les pratiques de l’UE concernant les questions de développement.
