The presentation will discuss the hypothesis of a neoliberal turn of the European Commission during the Delors mandates (1985-1995). It will analyse the intellectual and political basis of the Delors project for Europe, its market oriented dimension but also its counterparts. The industrial policy is taken as a crucial example of this evolution. Finally the presentation will look at the political implications of this project during the negotiations of the Maastricht Treaty. The presentation is based upon recent research in the Historical Archives of the EU and especially the private archives of members of the Delors cabinet.
