Relations Internationales: National Security & conflicts

Nature Élément Constitutif
Crédits ECTS 3
Volume horaire total 18


Since the end of the Cold War, international and national security issues changed significantly : the main threat for the collective security is no more the excess of state power but the weakness of some states. In Africa in particular, the collapse of states feeds intrastate armed conflicts which spread generally in the region, causing a destabilizing situation. The United Nations are seeking an appropriate answer. Since the Boutros Boutros Ghali’s Agenda for Peace, peacebuilding missions try to strengthen the capacity of the state (state building) and its legitimacy (nation-building). The aim of the course is to explore the changing paradigm on security issues and the evolution of the United Nations interventions.
