AREAS AND TOPICS IN WHICH YOU CAN CONSULT WITH THE LECTURER

Chapter 1: How did we get here?
A synthetic description of world history with a focus on the nature, the development and the fall of empires, from Egypt to the United States. Students will understand how the current situation is the result of a series of historical events, and how by understanding them, possible solutions emerge in current complex problems.

Chapter 2: Definitions and concepts
From the concept of borders to the definition of the nature of conflicts, several of the current challenges will be described, and the science of geopolitics will be explained.

Chapter 3: The issue of resources
A global overview of the current availability of some of the world's most important resources will be shown. Potential for conflicts and solutions will be demonstrated.

Chapter 4: Economic perspectives
How tomorrow's consumers will behave is crucial for today's strategic options. We will study in this chapter how the very notions of ownership, payment and the nature of an offer are being shaken, and how entire economic models are threatened (Music and Automobile industry, television) and new ones emerge.

Chapter 5: Social perspectives
Demography and urbanisation are the focus of this chapter. Understanding how the world changes when Nigeria has a larger population than China, and how current centres of power are affected is at the heart of this demonstration.

Chapter 6: Political perspectives
The reshaping of the world political order, produced by an unprecedented shift in power will be explained. Its consequences and potential risks will be discussed hence showing alternative scenarios.
