Résumé : During the about thirty years of regional policy, the European Union went through several steps in its implementation as much at the level of its conceptualisation as of its adaptations to the successive enlargements. The most important one was certainly the reform of structural funds realized in 1989. If some improvements have been realized over the different programmation periods, the most important one bears on the present programmation period. The new regulation framework wants to be more strategic and less constraining from the administrative viewpoint. It is to an analysis of the evolution of both the European regional and structural policies as well as of its implementation in the Brussels-Wallonia territorial area that this paper is devoted.
