This program is part of the HEIP master’s cycle, it is designed to prepare graduates to specialize in careers in International governance and development strategies within inter-governmental organizations and NGOs.
The context of economic, legal and institutional globalization, means we have to rethink the rules intended to regulate world governance and peace keeping conditions; countries, like France, with strong historical and cultural traditions, are called upon to broaden the scope of their cooperation and development, to integrate the issue of international migration and to adapt their methods.
Emerging priority issues for human development are, for example, environmental protection or protection against insecurity and terrorism.
This program can be done as a dual diploma with the London Metropolitan University.
Program under the direction of Edwige Avice (former Minister)
M/s Avice started her career at Crédit Lyonnais, then joined the cabinet of the Chief Executive of Public Hospitals of Paris. After this she joined the government serving as Minister for Cooperation and Development, Youth and Sport; Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Secretary of State at the Ministry of Defense.
She later founded the investment company “Financière de Brienne”, which invests in SME involved in strategic high-technology, she is the CEO of this company.
She also carries out advisory missions as a European expert.
Just like France, the United Kingdom benefits from strong diplomatic and academic traditions in the field of international relations. For students wishing to specialize in one of these fields, HEIP and the London Metropolitan University offer a one-year course enabling students to master both French and British approaches. This joint education is all the richer in view of the current context, where European relations are being redefined, and, more generally, there is a shift in the overall balances on the international stage.
The two-semester lecture program includes one semester in Paris and one in London and a master’s thesis written under the supervision of a London Metropolitan University professor.
Students graduate with a Master of Arts in International Relations from London Metropolitan University (British diploma) and the HEIP diploma.
