Course Description

The aims and objectives of this course is to provide to a group of 25 students max intellectual challenge about diplomatic practices in the world. Contrary to some courses on diplomacy, this one is not delivered by a practitioner who is telling about his experience. Prof. Lequesne is an academic who studies diplomatic practices from a purely academic point of view. He belongs to a group of scholars like Iver Neumann at LSE, Vincent Pouliot at Mc Gill or Rebeca Adler Nielsen in University of Copenhagen who studies diplomatic practices as a social activity, using mostly the tools of sociology and sometimes anthropology.
Each course will be divided in two parts: a lecture by the professor on a particular topic and a discussion of a reading presented by a group of two students.
