Espace mondial, a French vision of Global studies

Por: Coursera . en: , ,

  • Introduction
    • The current global world implies a new approach of the international arena, breaking with classical theories.
  • Inequalities
    • The main economic and social parameters indicate an unequal and instable world.
  • Regionalism
    • The nation-state territory is challenged by new kinds of integration, and particularly by fragile regional constructions.
  • 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.
  • Globalization
    • Globalization is a complex process which is challenging the main traditional aspects of the world order.
  • Identities
    • Identity has to be revisited and considered as a social and a political construct.
  • Religions
    • Religion is perceived as a major parameter of the present world order, but generally in an oversimplified way.
  • Nation State
    • Is traditional nation-state still working everywhere around the world?
  • Power
    • Is power still meaningful and efficient?
  • War and Peace
    • New international conflicts have a specific configuration and imply a new treatment.
  • International System
    • Polarization and multilateralism are the new features of the post 1945 international system. The first one is probably over; the second one is challenged.
  • Conclusion
    • Going ahead to a new regulation?
