French term or phrase: double emploi
...lors de cette rencontre, les pays maghrébins nous ont expliqué qu'ils s'étaient concertés au préalable pour savoir s'il était intéressant ou non de participer à une relance de ce dialogue. La question se posait en effet d'un éventuel double emploi avec le forum, avec Barcelone, avec les relations bilatérales déjà très denses et avec les négociations que plusieurs d'entre eux ont pour l'établissement d'accords avec l'UE.

"Duplication "


Explanation:
This is the word I would use in this case. I think that "overlapping" is more the translation of "chevauchement" in French.

See a few references:

This updated guide has been revised
to ensure consistency with the UCS
2.0, to eliminate duplication, and
make it easier to read and apply.
