The course aims to provide students with the theoretical notions and practical approaches needed to understand the major contemporary issues and the risk environment faced by public, private and associative actors.
The aim of this course is to address the basic cross-cutting notions of international relations in order to provide the vocabulary and tools necessary for the analysis of geopolitical situations, to offer keys for reading the main geopolitical issues and to enable students to grasp the practical implications of geopolitical knowledge by putting them into situations.
Each session is structured around a theme and is divided into four sessions aimed at presenting the main elements of factual analysis of the theme (Keys), tackling one or more theoretical concepts of international relations (Concepts), tackling a case study of a specific crisis (Case) and presenting a practical application of the thematic knowledge, notably in the form of interventions prepared by the students (Context).
