L’Union européenne, puissance normative dans l’océan Indien : Les îles de l’océan Indien face au défi du libre-échange

Abstract : The European Union has recently concluded free trade agreements with Madagascar, Mauritius, the Seychelles and Singapore and is currently negotiating another one with Indonesia. The implementation of these preferential agreements implies a gradual economic integration accompanied by a more or less developed regulatory and normative convergence. This upgrade is demanding because it involves adopting norms and standards and respecting specific rules in the field of investment, competition or standardization and certification. As the European acquis (legislation, EU case-law and international agreements in particular) in these areas is constantly evolving, the islands’ economies have to adapt to a changing legal environment, even if, contrary to the accession candidates, they don’t have to incorporate the full acquis into their legislations. This article analyses the changes related to the implementation of the regional economic integrations that are the free trade zones. It also highlights the brakes and resistance to these transformations by studying the case of the Comoros, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
