The international environment changes at an unprecedented pace. The election of the American President Trump has reshuffling cards of geopolitics and strategies. New alliances were formed in the political and trade fields, with consequences on governance and on the world economy. Yesterday’s partners might not be reunited within the same alliances tomorrow.
The world must face new challenges (including the Covid-19 pandemic), as well as new issues and rules that can destabilize today’s globalized world system.
The primary objective of this course is to provide knowledge to students on world strategic issues. Students will be able to better anticipate world transformation, as well as analyze, evaluate and anticipate risks related to geopolitics.
A pragmatic approach to today’s world situation will be taken, with many case studies that will be presented to develop analytical and strategic skills.
