12ème édition des Dialogues Stratégiques

May 13, 2022

Depuis 2016, le Policy Center for the New South et le Centre HEC de Géopolitique organisent chaque année deux éditions des « Dialogues Stratégiques ». Cette plateforme d’analyse et d’échange réunit des experts, des chercheurs provenant de différents think-tanks et du monde académique, des praticiens, ainsi que des décideurs politiques pour débattre des grandes questions géopolitiques et sécuritaires à l’échelle internationale, ainsi que des problématiques d’importance commune à la fois pour l’Europe et l’Afrique.

Le cycle de séminaires a pour vocation d’offrir un environnement orienté vers les politiques publiques « policy-oriented », où les panélistes se réunissent dans un cadre interactif et constructif pour confronter et enrichir leurs analyses respectives. Cette collaboration est issue du partenariat tissé entre les deux centres de réflexion, en vue de favoriser le dialogue scientifique et multidisciplinaire et de contribuer à la production d’analyses pertinentes sur des problématiques majeures.

Dans la perspective de partager les fruits des échanges menés lors des séminaires avec les participants et les parties prenantes intéressées, les discussions et échanges font l’objet de « Policy Papers » qui sont regroupés au sein d’une publication conjointe.

Les Dialogues Stratégiques sont des séminaires s’étalant sur une journée entière lors desquels décideurs et experts échangent avec une audience de chercheurs établis et de praticiens autour d’une question portant sur un enjeu global et une problématique d’intérêt régional.

Cette douzième édition des Dialogues Stratégiques se tiendra le 13 mai 2022 au Campus HEC Paris (sur invitation) et s’insère dans la continuité de la collaboration fructueuse entre les deux centres. Les discussions porteront sur « le nouveau profile stratégique de la mer rouge » et « l’émergence des nouvelles alliances ».

- Session 1 – Le nouveau profil stratégique de la mer rouge

- Session 2 – Les nouvelles alliances : Perspectives économiques et géopolitiques
