Back in 2008, in its report Global trends 2025: a Transformed World, the US National Intelligence Council (NIC) warned of the very high probability of a pandemic occurring before 2025, originating in a region of the world with a high human population density marked by promiscuity between humans and animals, such as China. The SARS COV2 or Covid-19 pandemic proved him right.
At the end of the Second World War, when Europe had just experienced six years of major conflict, a new kind of opposition emerged, resulting from the confrontation of two blocs. With the advent of the Cold War came the need and desire to promote collective security and defence for Europe.
The aim of this report is to determine the role of the human capital of defence players (in the sense of knowledge and skills to be developed) in maintaining or even consolidating national sovereignty, which we have defined as the freedom to decide and the power to act based on a long-term strategy.
If we consider Europe as a geographical entity, its collective security rests on the two pillars of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), a politico-military alliance focused on the collective defence of its members, and the European Union (EU), a political and economic partnership that has extended its action to the security of its territory and its populations. In a changing geostrategic and political context (Brexit, the United States' Asian pivot, the global health crisis, etc.), European states have many different perceptions of European defence, especially given their different memberships in different organisations and their different post-World War II histories.

How does international governance help to identify, prevent or limit distributional conflicts linked to global warming?

The impact of a two-degree world on the UN Security Council: what are the issues and strategies for France?
As with the Covid-19 crisis, climate change underlines both the growing fragility of multilateralism and the urgent need to rethink global governance to better anticipate crises and manage them collectively.
