Teachers : Jean-François DI MEGLIO (Formateur). Prerequisite : A good mastering of main issues at stake in contemporary international relations. Some ideas about the historical and recent developments in Asia's political landscape. Appetite for prospective thinking. Educational level Master 1 an absolute prerequisite. Pedagogical Format : Seminar Course validation : A short dissertation (individual write-up, limited time, 3 or 4 hours) will be requested by the end of the term. Additional elements provided by students not required but welcome (group or individual presentation in a short timeframe, participation in debates) and will contribute on an optional basis to ﬁnal assessment. Workload : Attendance to teachings absolutely indispensable. Rest of workload left to each student's assessment but obviously assessed as sufﬁcient or not when evaluation time comes. Course Description : The teaching will basically enable the students to come out with the main and necessary elements to assess width and size of China's ambitions in reforming global governance both in terms of international relations as well as ﬁnancial regulation. The idea is to deﬁne the best appropriate understanding of China's current and future stance (non-interventionism/inﬂuence/commitment and engagement in the global governance) ; The twelve sessions (2 hours) will each focus on a thematic approach and a speciﬁc angle to tackle the issues and refer to the most recent developments in international relations as well as examples/cases. Also, references to the theories of international relations will be made to use China not only as a ﬁeld of investigation but as a “tool” to better understand stakes and behaviours in a “multipolar” world. The teaching will be a mix between recap of recent history of People's republic of China, study of issues both in terms of governance and international relations and more practical approach and case studies with scenario-building where participation by students will be highly important.

Course Description : At a time when China is extending its inﬂuence in all aspects of world affairs, assessing its path to capitalist development has become pressing. Instead of focusing exclusively on the policy of reform and opening up launched in the People's Republic of China, this course intends to reframe this path with those of other Chinese societies (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and overseas communities). By capitalism we do not intend a well-deﬁned system, but rather a way of organizing societies. In capitalist societies, seeking proﬁt and accumulating wealth are the determinant activities, the control of the means of accumulation being into the hands of a speciﬁc class. But, at the same time, the destructive nature of capitalist accumulation leads to social conﬂic
