La Guyane et le Brésil, ou la quête d'intégration continentale d'un département français d'Amérique

Abstract : The overall objective of this paper is to explain the nature of the special relationship between a French region of South America, French Guiana, and Brazil that colonial history made neighbors, at the time when in a general context of continental integration these two countries are starting to knit closer institutional links putting an end to four centuries of rivalry and mutual ignorance. But French Guiana is undergoing high migration and environmental pressure on the part of a particularly dynamic Brazil, as well as the constraints of a french and european membership felt as choking in spite of the benefits it provides. In the midst of its search for its own identity quest, French Guiana would like to integrate into a geopolitical environment than Brazil on its side seeks to organize to its benefit, as part of its strategy for continental assertion. At the time when a bridge over the Oyapock river between the two neighboring is being built, recent regional cooperation agreements are aimed at "continentalization" French Guiana, in South America which it has so far been little integrated, but it must struggle between of multiple regional, national or supranational issues, which it is far too small.
