We study the long term evolution of the mean eccentricity of trajectories within the MEO region, and in particular at altitudes corresponding to Galileo nominal or disposal cases, following a semi-analytical and an analytical approach. The model accounts for all the significant perturbations acting on the trajectories: zonal and tesseral parameters of the Earth's gravity field, luni-solar attraction, atmospheric drag when relevant; we study the time evolution of the two components of the eccentricity vector, depending on the choice of the initial conditions: long period variations, that could even been seen as secular effects over some periods, are interpreted in terms of the influence of the luni-solar attraction. Maps of maximal eccentricity reached over less than 2 centuries are performed with the STELA s/w, and the role played by the Ω + 2ω resonance is underlined.
