Institut d'Etude du Développement Economique et Social, Université Paris 1 (IEDES) The M2 Research course on "Developing societies" is devoted to the study of the relationship between development practices and policies in societies in the South. This pathway is doubly versatile. It is not only pluridisciplinary in the social sciences, which differentiates it from other formations linked to mono-disciplinary paths, but also of a comparative character. She works on African, Latin American and Asian lands and approaches the various themes in a global way, going beyond the classic North / South dichotomy.
This training offer prepares for the research professions in their diversity: doctorate, but also more operational posts (NGOs, national institutions, international) requiring a research approach. Students are considered as young researchers and are associated in this capacity with the activities of doctoral students and researchers of the UMR "Development and Societies", which is backed by training.
The M2R is renewed this year by the creation of a "Cooperative Space Development Studies" elaborated in partnership with the Master ECD (Comparative Study of Development) of the EHESS. This project is one of the winners of the 2014 call for innovative pedagogical projects launched by héSam Université. Funded by heSam, it opens a joint seminar to become a digital module, to offer grants to the field and to set up an applied methodology workshop.
National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (DRIIE-SNSPA) The Master’s Program in Latin American Studies is an initiative of the Institute of Latin American Studies and the Department of International Relations and European Integration of the National School of Political Studies and Public Administration, and is the first program of this kind in Romania. We emphasize that this program is bilingual, in Spanish and English, so that the courses are held in two internationally used languages, vital for facilitating students’ access to information, documents and resources of the Latin America and Caribbean region. The bilingual courses also create the possibility for students to come from other countries than Romania.
The program aims to become a regional point of interest for people who want to complete their training in international relations and to acquire expertise in Latin American issues. Designing such a program came from the need to meet the demands and changes occurring in the international system, the states in Latin America becoming more interesting for the international community. We will try through the courses to familiarize the students with developments in Latin America and the Caribbean, to analyze phenomena that led the various economic, social and political activities, to predict the relations between states in this area and other relevant actors in the international system. These acquired skills can also be applied through the involvement of students in the activities developed within the Institute of Latin American Studies, which is an integrated part of the National University.
This program is held in English and Spanish and it addressed to university graduates under Bologna system (3 years) or to those who graduated from long term university study programs (4 years). Form of study: full time, 2 years, 120 ECTS
