Decision-makers, students, entrepreneurs, this MOOC provides you with a cross-disciplinary approach of the world and highlights the way actors interact to build new international relations

To explain how globalization rebuilt public policy and social behavior, we study the different political, economic, and social actors - public or private, individual or collective - and the exchanges and interactions between them that are remaking international relations. This course is inspired by a French sociological and historical approach to international relations.

 

Programme

WEEK 1

Introduction

The current global world implies a new approach of the international arena, breaking with classical theories.

WEEK 2

Inequalities

The main economic and social parameters indicate an unequal and instable world.

WEEK 3

Regionalism

The nation-state territory is challenged by new kinds of integration, and particularly by fragile regional constructions.

WEEK 4

World Actors

Nation-states are no more the only international actor. Many groups and 7 billions of individuals are now potential actors of our current international system.

WEEK 5

Globalization

Globalization is a complex process which is challenging the main traditional aspects of the world order.

WEEK 6

Identities

Identity has to be revisited and considered as a social and a political construct.

WEEK 7

Religions

Religion is perceived as a major parameter of the present world order, but generally in an oversimplified way.

WEEK 8

Nation State

Is traditional nation-state still working everywhere around the world?

WEEK 9

Power

Is power still meaningful and efficient?

WEEK 10

War and Peace

New international conflicts have a specific configuration and imply a new treatment.

WEEK 11

International System -Conclusion

Polarization and multilateralism are the new features of the post 1945 international system. The first one is probably over; the second one is challenged.
