ABSTRACT
Sub-Saharan Africa has emerged over the last ten years as a field of experimentation and a space to legitimate new European policies in the field of foreign, security and defence policies. Building the other while building oneself is the challenging game of the European Union (EU) in Africa. Unexpected forms of African resistances to Europe's ambitions, its agenda and hypothesis of action, have led to absurd results, revealing mistakes in conceptualization, processing and implementation of the EU's international action. Africa becomes the mirror of the EU.
