Abstract and Keywords

This chapter analyzes how French public policy approaches have studied the influence of European integration on France’s domestic public policies. Starting from a review of the general literature on Europeanization, the chapter presents three periods in the study of Europeanization that characterize French and francophone research from the 1990s to the beginning of the 2000s: the discovery of European integration as factor of domestic change; the period where research imported comparative Europeanization questions from abroad; and, finally, the emancipation of French Europeanization research. The chapter stresses that while Europeanization research emerged concurrently in the French and international realms, part of the French approach, embedded in a cognitive framework, best subsumed under the heading of “réferentiel,” has gradually started to influence debates at the international level.

Keywords: France, public policy, Europeanization, sociology, constructivism, usages, référentiel
