A word from the CEDS Director of Studies, Professor at Paris 5
“The issues of the post-Covid 19 global system are of major interest to CEDS faculty and researchers.
Indeed, the current pandemic has brought about an economic upheaval with an unprecedented recession, a reorganization of work, a return to national borders, but also a potential challenge to individual freedoms. At the same time, human scapegoats are replaced by an “invisible enemy capable of unifying humanity.”
A word from the Director of Development of the CEDS, Vice President of the Schuman Institute
“I have chosen today to breathe new life into the CEDS of the INSEEC U group, of which I took over as Director of Development this year. By inviting personalities from the world of politics, diplomacy and the media to give lectures to the students of the Center for Diplomatic Studies (who are themselves senior officials in the fields of diplomacy and defense in France and abroad). My mission is to transmit and bring to life, through academic requirements and research work, the issues of mediation, conflict resolution, participatory democracy, foresight with regard to the major international upheavals linked to economic, environmental and social changes, the duty to remember, to help each other and to fight against all forms of oppression throughout the world – in the continuity of my commitment to the Robert Schuman Institute for Europe and the Council of Europe.
