    Les relations entre l’Europe et les pays de la rive Sud de la Méditerranée constituent un bon laboratoire pour la réflexion et la prospective sur le développement et la globalisation économique. Toute prospective exige un état des lieux susceptible d’ouvrir la voie à une nouvelle coopération entre la rive Sud et la rive Nord de la Méditerranée. L’actualité exige un élargissement de ces accords à une réflexion plus approfondie sur les dimensions humaines et culturelles. En effet, l’économisme qui inspire ce type de partenariat n’est plus une réponse pertinente ni aux problèmes de société et d’environnement ni même aux énigmes économiques. Tout se passe comme si l’avancement de l’approche économique avait besoin elle-même d’une critique radicale à partir des autres domaines de l’homme. C’est dans cette ouverture à la fois interdisciplinaire et interculturelle que des avancées en termes d’interprétations et d’actions sur les terrains deviendront possibles dans un proche avenir. The relations between Europe and the countries bordering the South Coast of the Meditarranean Sea constitute a good subject of thinking and of prospective on economic development and globalization. All economic prospective needs an assessment of the situation which may open a new kind of cooperation between the South and North Coasts of the Mediterranean Sea. Today, a widening of the existing agreements is needed, including the human and cultural dimensions. As a matter of fact, the only « economicist » approach which leads to this kind of partnerships cannot be considered anymore as a pertinent answer to the problems of societies, to environmental problems and to economic enigma. All of this can be interpreted as follows: the advancement of the economist approach needs a radical criticism, taking account of the other social sciences. In this framework, new interdieciplinary and intercultural developements - in terms of interpretation and of action - may occur in a close future.
