Savoir si une coopération mondiale est possible en dépit de grandes différences.

Nous vivons dans un monde heureusement varié, mais des différends internes et internationaux naissent souvent de différences culturelles. Une coopération mondiale est-elle possible en dépit de grandes spécificités culturelles, institutionnelles et contextuelles ? Les confrontations idéologiques peuvent-elles empêcher la collaboration entre Etats ?

Vous le saurez grâce à ce cours de quatre semaines qui analyse des organisations et des cultures dans le monde entier. Vous évaluerez la pertinence de l’idée d’un “choc des civilisations” et vous vous demanderez si notre planète devient vraiment plus libérale économiquement et culturellement.

Découvrir les atouts et les failles de la négociation interculturelle

Une bonne négociation repose sur la quête de terrains d’entente difficiles à trouver quand les cultures sont trop différentes. Dans un monde globalisé comment trouver les moyens d’améliorer notre communication interculturelle ?

Voyez comment nous y parvenons et pourquoi tant de tentatives de réconciliation ont échoué. Découvrez la profondeur des écarts entre idéologies antagonistes et distinctions culturelles. Sachez comment modernité et tradition continuent d’influencer les débats autour de la puissance.

Revoir les relations internationales de 1925 à 2025

Nous vivons dans un monde différent de celui de 1925. Découvrez comment nous avons progressé et formé il y a longtemps des Unions internationales qui existent toujours. Vous appliquerez ensuite vos connaissances à un essai de prospective en réfléchissant aux défis qui nous attendent et à la manière dont nous pouvons les surmonter.

Skip to 0 minutes and 10 seconds As different as we are, can we collaborate? With conflicting memories, can we build a world government? When talking about global order what immediately comes to mind are our past failures to make such a world possible, like the League of Nations, two and even three world wars, or failed states by the dozen and the current limit to electoral integrity. There are countless obstacles on the road to peace and prosperity. In the past, taking refuge in cultural values and identities was easier than interacting with foreigners. But living in isolation is not the only barrier to sound globalisation. Norms that once promoted free markets and elections as well as human rights are increasingly contested. Progress is no longer consensual.

Skip to 1 minute and 4 seconds Science has lost its appeal, and universal ethics is replaced by local rules of morality. Alternatives to the left/right divide of the West have become popular in the rest of the world. Confucianism and Islamism are back in the global South. Even in the global North the Republican creed, born during the revolutions of the 18th century, is now contested. Agreements between dozens of powers used to be commonplace. But today, with almost 200 countries, agreements seem unattainable. There are many more stakeholders beyond government, international organisations. While within each nation, minorities weaken its negotiating power. There are good news too. People are attached to world institutions. Inequality and injustice are increasingly criticised. Domination, oligarchy, hegemony are no longer accepted.

Skip to 2 minutes and 7 seconds Rising states endorse the existing rules, like international law or diplomatic protocols. Organisations expand. They address unsolved issues and enduring conflicts. Their networks are stronger. Their legitimacy is less doubted. But the dilemma persists in other guises. We can promote integration of our cultures and regimes into a global compound, or draw a demarcation line with strangers, foreign powers, and multilateral institutions. In this course, you will find fruitful thought about this dilemma and possibly solve it, at least for yourself.
