Abstract :
The collaborative activity of bishops of different Churches sui iuris has its foundation in the conciliar texts of the Second Vatican Council. This collaborative activity has been implemented in various structures, including the episcopal conference. While conferences are part of the hierarchical constitution of the Latin Church, canon 450 permits the participation of ordinaries of another rite. The episcopal conference is examined for its inter-ecclesial collaborative potential both as laid out in the Latin Code and as implemented in the statutes of various conferences.

La collaboration des évêques de différentes Églises sui iuris a son fondement dans les textes conciliaires du Concile Vatican II. Cette collaboration a été mise en oeuvre selon diverses structures, y compris la conférence épiscopale. Alors que les conférences font partie de la constitution hiérarchique de l’Église latine, le canon 450 permet la participation des Ordinaires d’un autre rite. La conférence épiscopale est examinée pour son potentiel de collaboration inter-ecclésiale tant qu’énoncé dans le Code latin et mis en oeuvre dans les statuts de diverses conférences.
