Course Description : The course aims at giving a solid knowledge of current security issues in NATO and EU, allowing, in particular, students to apply later to think tanks or international institutions. The course will examine how both NATO and EU countries members are facing the challenges of the current international crisis and tensions (e.g. Russia assertiveness, Ukraine, Syria and South China Sea, hybrid warfare, for example) and are responding by adapting their policies and capacities. The current EU debates on an evolving security situation and the evolution of NATO, starting from the results of the Warsaw Summit meeting (8-9 July 2016), will be at the center of the discussions, taking into account the orientations of the coming new American administration as well as European diverse views of the future of the relationship with Russia. The consequences of the various options for a Brexit outcome will be examined. The EU and NATO policies debate on new threats and challenges (eg. terrorism, cyber vulnerability, hybrid warfare, emigration, renationalization of foreign policies, etc.) will be studied, including their consequences on the new perceived continuum between external and homeland security and its implications on EU and NATO.

NEGOTIATING DEVELOPMENT IN THE GLOBAL SOUTH

Course Description : In September 2015, the United Nations agreed on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and decided on 17 new and universal Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including climate change. The SDGs seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what the latter did not achieve. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development : the economic, social and environmental. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development marks a watershed for development cooperation, for at least three reasons. The ambition of the global goals is without precedent. They are universal and apply to all countries, rich and poor alike. And they were decided at a time of history when the world has never been that wealthy, and the wealth so unequally distributed. Blurring historical frontiers between the “North” and the “South”, and between recipient and donor countries, the new Sustainable Development Agenda raises several issues that this course intends to address. Can poverty be history ? How tackle inequality issues in addition to environmental objectives ? Are countries equal in solving the sustainable development implementation gap ? Can industrialization – one of the SDGs – be sustainable
