Governance and the World


Nine authors have written the nine articles of the eight chapters of the present study.

A form of advocacy for the notion of research/action, this work consistently demonstrates the educational nature of the FEDE!

It tackles very current topics: from secularism in the world (Jean Michel Quillardet, lawyer), to diplomacy of influence (Genci Burimi, journalist), the FEDE and its associates wished to make this book a research book that is accessible to a broad readership. A guidance review to better navigate the intricacies of global finance (Marc Delachaussée, lecturer and researcher), information on the internationalisation of higher education (Salima Laabi Zuber, sociologist), a directive reflection on climatology and natural disasters (Jean-Louis Bischoff, lecturer and researcher), an analysis of the “shadow global government” (Alain Tobelem, lecturer and researcher), synthetic descriptions of public health policies in the world (Alexandre and Jean-Noël Vallée, doctor and professor of medicine respectively), a situational analysis of the nature of trust/political governance relations (Ali Armand, sociologist and certified coach) argue in favour of the FEDE’s aspiration.

This book aims to provide an understanding of the global organisational mechanisms in terms of strategy and geopolitics. It enables an analysis of the interactions between states, international institutions, economic stakeholders and civil societies. It is a combination of strategic, geopolitical, economic, social, sociological, historical, legal and even communication skills. It offers tools for analysing international governance in order to understand its complexities and issues. To understand today’s world, is to be able, tomorrow, to deliver more effective, more open, more coherent, more legitimate, more responsible and therefore more efficient managerial decisions.
