    L’étude présente le contexte institutionnel de la Banque des Etats de l’Afrique Centrale (BEAC) et procède à l’analyse de sa gouvernance. Il en ressort un management aux objectifs imprécis ou contraires à ceux de la Communauté Economique et Monétaire de l’Afrique Centrale (CEMAC)1. Le postulat est que des degrés de liberté pour une politique monétaire originale existent. Son avènement suppose une appropriation des principes de bonne gouvernance applicables aux banques centrales, une requalification des critères de recrutement des dirigeants et un réajustement des priorités de la BEAC. The study presents the institutional context of the Bank of the Central African States (BEAC) and proceeds to the analysis of its governance. It shows a management where the purposes are unclear or in conflict with those of the economic and monetary community of Central Africa States (CEMAC)[1]. The premise is that degrees of freedom for the development of an original monetary policy exist. Its development needs the implementation of the principles of good governance to central banks, a redefinition of leaders’ recruitment criteria and an adjustment of the priorities of the BEAC.
