Understand current political stakesas you learn about important concepts and how to analyze politics with a critical point of view.

Politics impact all of us. Everyday, political decisions impact many areas of our lives. In the 21st century, multiple paradoxes blur our vision of these decisions.

  • In which context are these decisions made?
  • What is power in a multi-level society?
  • Does the state remain the main political actor, if it is in competition with international and regional organizations?
  • Can democracy – pushed forward by the international community – coexist with authoritarian, or even totalitarian, regimes?
  • What is the role of ideologies in contemporary politics?

The course aims at understanding and explaining political phenomena from a critical standpoint.

The course material and exercises are in English but please note that the videos are in French with English subtitles.
