Maurice, petit pays, grandes ambitions

Abstract : Mauritius, a small independent nation in the Southwest of the Indian Ocean, appears as a country which has reached its economic development in spite of its geographical distance from the biggest central places in the world and its modest resources. This success, coming from the experimentation of world agencies recipes, but also from a robust internal will, amazes by the scale of the transformations which affect the country. It also raises the question of the originality and the value of the model in a regional context of underdevelopment. This article analyses the conditions of this “success story”, its spatial inscription and the limits of the model of development.
