Abstract

The "neo-liberal moment" of the RPR: a tentative interpretation Starting in 1981, after the restructuring operated by J. Chirac, the RPR seemed to feel the need for an ideological aggiornamento. In a surprising manner, it undertook a process of intellectual renewal which took it away from its old Gaullist heritage, in the wake of the most extreme theses of the neo-liberal ideology. Retrospectively, it appears that this genuine " neo-liberal " moment did not serve its strategy of conquering power, because of the rise of the National Front, and then because this turn to the right contributed to the re-creation on its left of a liberal and social centrism ; finally, because this ideological conversion fueled the party's internal divisions.
