historique, pour mieux comprendre cette mutation récente de ce phénomène culturel nommé une exposition. Les étudiants seront amenés à réaliser des ﬁches de lecture pour appréhender ces enjeux.

Participation : 10% of overall grading. Bonus : 10% for students having participated in all sessions. Workload : Read-ahead package per course : 15-50 pages will be considered “required” (though no need to explain during the session), possibly 30-80 pages more considered “optional/ useful/amplifying knowledge”. Most readings will be ofﬁcial documents available on the internet (such as the UN Charter). All readings except for a few books (recommended) will be available on the Drive at the beginning of the course (in January 2018). It is important to note that the discussion in session is not based on an analysis of the read-ahead. The read-ahead is only meant as implied knowledge. There will be no grading conducted on whether the reading has occurred or not. Pedagogical Method : All sessions are based on a presentation delivered by the instructor, leaving room for discussion. The presentation itself is in PowerPoint and will be made available on the Drive after delivery. Flexibility will be applied depending on avenues of discussion. Course Description : The aim of the course is to develop an understanding of military operational considerations related to the use of force. Starting with a description of what military operations are, the session will turn to the political aims and decision-making process, under different “frameworks” (e.g., UN-led operations, NATO, EU, coalition operations). Throughout, the students will be familiarized with the operational planning processes, the conduct of operations, and speciﬁc aspects such as logistics, legal considerations, civil-military cooperation in and out of theatre, chain of command and authorities, high-level political-military engagement in and out of theatre, and some technical considerations per domain (air, land, maritime, special operations) that may have political consequences. Each session is based on a presentation inviting for a discussion, with examples or illustrations generally taken from the history of recent operations (e.g., operations under UN mandate in general, UN-led operations, NATO- and EU-led, framework nation concept, etc). Particular attention will be paid to the transition from war or conﬂict to ceaseﬁre or peace, with
