Vers une politisation du débat public européen ? L’institutionnalisation des ‘fondations politiques européennes’

Abstract : The creation of political foundations at the EU level, made possible owing to a Regulation adopted in December 2007, signifies a breakthrough in comparison with the previous position of the European Commission towards party affiliated organisations at both national and European levels. This evolution is a part of the reorientation of the European communication policies, which seems to be an attempt to reach the public largely indifferent to the European affairs. This article analyses the mobilisation of political entrepreneurs in the European Parliament and of national foundations’ networks, lobbying the Commission and Council representatives. The Commission’s initiative needs to be considered in the political context in the aftermath of the 2005 constitutional referenda defeat. The article proposes a critical analysis of the foundations’ contribution to the politicisation of the European public debate. It analyses their communication strategies to see how they respond to the European objectives of proximity and dialogue.
