This summer school is jointly organised by Sciences Po Bordeaux, the University of Bordeaux, Université Laval, the Institute for Strategic Research at the Military School, and Paris Panthéon-Assas University. It is designed for graduate and doctoral students as well as post-doctoral fellows and professionals interested in the subject of international conflicts and interventions. Course content will allow participants to understand this topic through a multidisciplinary approach combining law, political science, international affairs, and economics.

The programme covers the analysis of different issues related to the cycle of international interventions (prevention/preparation, intervention, resolution/post-intervention). Participants will acquire a synthetic and in-depth knowledge of the tools for analysing conflicts and interventions, thus allowing them to reflect on the major controversies that these interventions raise.

Target group

The course is tailored for graduate and doctoral students, as well as to post-doctoral fellows and professionals in the fields of law, economics, political science, and international relations.

Classes are conducted in French. Candidates should have at least a B2 level of French or equivalent. Knowledge of the English language is also required as preliminary readings are in English.

Candidates must provide a CV and a cover letter.

Course aim

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the three great steps of intervention
- Discuss operational, political, and legal challenges for each step of said interventions
- Differentiate intervention-related issues according to the relevant stakeholders
- Review the legitimacy and legality of an intervention or non-intervention
