Définir le voisin. La genèse de la Politique européenne de voisinage

Abstract : Officially launched in March 2003 by a communication from the European Commission, the European neighbourhood policy (ENP) officially deals with the relations between the European Union and its geographical and political contiguities. Set up within the Community arenas, and more specifically by the professionals of the management of Community external relations, the ENP is characterised by the integration of a discourse on threats and dangers that influences the way the relations with the neighbours are handled, and places the management of insecurities at the heart of its priorities. We look at this apparent paradox by providing a reconstruction of the genesis of the neighbourhood policy, that puts into relation the authorised discourses produced on the issue of the neighbourhood since January 2002, and the uses of these discourses in the practices of the social agents tasked with the setting up of the ENP.
