Résumé: We consider random walks in a random environment of the type $p_0+\gamma\w_z$, where $p_0$ denotes the transition probabilities of a stationary random walk on $\BZ^d$, to nearest neighbors, and $\w_z$ is an iid random perturbation. We give an explicit development, for small $\gamma$, of the asymptotic speed of the random walk under the annealed law, up to order 2. As an application, we construct, in dimension $d\ge 2$, a walk which goes faster than the stationary walk under the mean environment.
