Explanation:
or maybe it's the ARC that's being destroyed? More context would help, what is ARC?

Honestly, I have no clue what ARC is. I am just helping a friend out,who's trying to understand a paragraph in French she found doing research for something.
Thank you so much for your help. I'm sure it'll help her get the gist of it -- I have translated the rest of the paragraph as best as I can (after not using French for 10 years after studying it.....LOL) Kind regards, Nina Olds

disagree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: - by the ARC? - meaning of 'protocole'? - rendering of 'tense' of "est devenu"? In context, other readings possible...

ARC could mean:


Explanation:
Association pour la Recherche Cognitive
Alberta Research Council
Acquisition et Représentation des Connaissances
Action de Recherche Concertée
Association pour la Recherche sur le Cancer
Alliance des Radios Communautaire
Association pour la recherche au collégial
... the list goes on (that's after 14 sets of Google results.

However, probably none of these is right. If you ever find out, let us know!

Explanation:
1 - "après différentes destructions de l'ARC"

I read this bit to mean that the ARC is the one being destroyed. If it is about the French cancer research charity organisation (http://www.arc.asso.fr/), then this might be a reference to the financial scandals which hit the headlines a couple of years back. Some of the charity's senior administrators were caught with their hands in the till after having diverted funds from donations to places where they could get their sticky mitts on it.

2 - "l'ancien protocole"

Could also mean "agreement" not just procedure.

3 - "est devenu caduc"

"has become (present perfect not present indicative) nul and void", with an implication that it is so because time has run out.

The last two could be read together to mean that an old agreement is now time-barred, arguable not quite the same as an old procedure being invalid.
