Overview

Sign up to Coursera courses for free Learn how

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.

This course is also available in french version: www.coursera.org/learn/espace-mondial-fr/

Syllabus

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?
