La région entre attentes européennes et trajectoire nationale

Abstract : The creation of Regional Development Agencies at the regional scale in Turkey introduces new actors within the centralised development process of the country. Established at the NUTS 2 level, they are supposed to be the first step on the adaptation of the territorial system to EU standards, and to anticipate the European funds management in case of full membership. These RDAs are at the core of the creation of regional growth coalitions by supporting regional business communities, which are supposed to enhance endogenous capital and promote regional capacities in order to promote economic growth and social well-being. This analysis shows that the creation of a new territorialised actor does not necessary mean apparition of a new territorial administrative level : the new institutions are not a piece of evidence of a decentralisation process. On the contrary, they appear as new bodies of the centralised spatial planning process. The so called regionalisation process under europeanisation pressure is actually a new way of territorial management, closer to international neoliberal standards than to regional policy implementation demands.
