Résumé / Abstract
The Aquitaine TGV project belongs to the 14 European projects listed in Essen (1994). Its priority status was built on its European objective to link Madrid (from Paris and Europe) alongside the French Atlantic coast (as one knows, the other way to link Spain was by south-east France and Barcelona). In 1998, it was still at an early stage in the decision-making process and even at this stage its progress looked slow, hesitant, composed of stop-and-go periods. Seemingly, the legitimation of the Aquitaine TGV project was not clear and the actors involved in the decision-making process encountered difficulties to build it. A missing co-ordination could be our work hypothesis to comprehensively understand the case study. The analysis? approach focused on the 'concrete systems of action' that shaped the decision-making process of this project. This case study was undertaken within the framework of the Tenassess project, an European research program funded by the European commission., RAPPORT DE CONTRAT
