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.
