Example text

The French MEPs could not believe their ears when they heard that souteneurs (“pimps”) were essential to life in the mine. They had to await the interpreter’s correction to understand that it was in fact the job of “timber worker”; the mistake arose simply from poor knowledge of coal shaft specialties. Since then, technical terms have only multiplied and interpreters deserve great merit for recognizing them, but on the whole errors are relatively rare. Is the obstacle only of a linguistic order?

More frequent recourse to expertise implies a profound transformation of the political universe in European arenas. Similarly, the imbrication between a democracy of compromise and diverse forms of lobbying characterizes the new community configuration. In the parliament as in the commission, one can speak of a singular “culture” specific to the practitioners of Europe that mobilizes new kinds of savoir-faire, that incites people to adapt, even refashion, the dominant representations. ” In constructing Europe, a new identity is being created, signs of which may be perceived in the ways of expressing and practicing the art of politics.

A temporality where the future dimension takes over from the traditions of the past; a sharp awareness of an evolution that is difficult to control; the definition of a communitarian interest that faces up to the plurality of national interests: such are the ingredients of the “culture” shared by the practitioners of Europe. ” To the extent that “making Europe” appears a recent occupation, the expression “new cultural actors” might correctly apply to the communitarians of Brussels. But let us pursue the inquiry, for underneath the apparent uniformity of this European political and administrative function, a deeper diversity can be easily detected, provided one does not limit the notion of culture to its purely professional meaning.
