Objectifs du cours / Course objectives
The Middle East is characterized by great contradictions, manifested in the fact that the region is the world's richest region in terms of energy wealth. But remains in the same time as one of the world's most tense region. The region is the world's most spiritual, culturally and demographically diverse region, while it has not been able to create its self-empowerment In order to take off . One of the paradoxes of the Middle East is that, by its complexity and crisis, it continues to be a top priority in the handcraft of world geopolitics, and keeps the highest priority within international relations, mainly in the areas of energy, civilizational dialogue and international security
