In a recent article published in The Times, the French President, Jacques Chirac affirmed that, "the evolution of the world towards a multipolar situation is inevitable. In consequence, from today, the European Union should play a great role in the global governance?. He outlined his willingness to lead the European Union (EU) as a counter-power to the United States. This willingness of President Chirac to give a real status to the EU in the global governance raises the problem of governance within the Union itself. Indeed, how can we envisage a legitimate European intervention in the global system, if the rules of the democratic governance are not respected within the EU? We have to wonder to what extent the European Union enhances or undermine the democratic governance.
