    Shocks appear to be a major source of macroeconomic policy response in the WAEMU area. The purpose of this paper is to assess the resilience of such policies. We recourse to a Bayesian panel VAR which may assess in what context these shocks affect macroeconomic stabilization policies. The results suggest that national fiscal policies adjust to shocks with a very limited scope, while the monetary policy seems (relatively) more effective in terms of responding to inflation, importation rates and terms of trade shocks.
