The battle for a twenty-first century world order - Claude Revel
The current systemic crisis marks the end of one world order and begs the question of its replacement. The author examines the role of new state and non-state players, assesses the value of new political economic and social processes and offers a glimpse of the conditions for an alternative order resulting from the confrontation of other models.
Transatlantic relations in a zero-polar world - Simon Serfaty
How should the transatlantic relationship function in a world that is no longer polarised? How can America and Europe be rearticulated in their differences and their possible complementarity? The author offers us his analysis and his proposals.
Hyper-professionalized armed forces - Lionel Delort
The French military apparatus has been constantly evolving, over the last 15 years, towards an increasingly sophisticated model that required a qualitative leap for both men and equipment. The author illustrates the strengths and the limitations of this transformation, which could distance the military from society.
