PhD Thesis about the European Space Policy. Topic:
Designed as a public policy analysis, this thesis aims at analyzing the construction of the European space policy from the beginnings (in the sixties) up to the most contemporary developments. While trying to identify the 'referential(s)' of the European space policy, the thesis will bring to light, next to the classical dimensions related to the institutions and the interests (frequently mobilized in the space cooperation literature) a more cognitivist or constructivist dimension that allows to consider the complexity of the intellectual constructions explaining the emergence, the assertion and the implementation of a policy. The purpose is to confirm the following hypothesis: the European space policy (and its intrinsic difficulties) does not only result from the clash of the States' interests but is constructed trough an historical trajectory in which different social spaces, governed by specific norms and dominated by a certain type of actors, have been involved. After careful consideration of the 'Europeanization' phenomenon of the space policy, the thesis aims at demonstrating that over the years, this policy proved to be a large and ambitious project of contribution to the construction and legitimatisation of a political actor: the European Union as an international actor.
