Une République mondiale de l’administration ? Circulations internationales, sciences de gouvernement et réforme administrative (1910-1945)

Abstract : During the interwar period, a community of actors – at the interface of high administration and university – was established at the international level. It aimed at training administrators and setting up a science of administration thought as a tool for administrative reform. This « Republic of Administration » moreover and furthermore intended to strengthen the administration in a liberal state. This article focuses on the reformers’ political intentions. They tried to reinforce efficient public policies and to enable administrative experts to play a key-role in their implementation. But this article also underlines the absence of proper international circulation among the members of this community. The project of a Republic of Administration remained incomplete as the purposes were not the same among the reformers of both sides of the Atlantic in terms of scientific claims, as well as political aims and geopolitical targets. The international meeting of administrative reformers didn’t really occur.
