Presentation

The Chair of Defense Economics and the Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM, Paris) organize a workshop on the theme “Economics, Security and Politics”. Throughout this day, we will explore the links between democracy, its construction, public opinions and military actions or conflicts.

Topics addressed in this workshop were inspired by the book of Elie Baranets Comment perdre une guerre. Une théorie du contournement démocratique (How to lose a war. A theory of democratic circumvention), published in 2017, CNRS editions.

We will mostly focus on the relationships between citizenship and military actions. The term “citizenship” embraces here elements related to public opinion and the rise of nationalism or populism in modern societies. Contributions on how public opinion (via twitter for example) shapes military interventions, defense or international politics (e.g. defense spending, arms trade) will be discussed. Moreover, the role of conflicts – wars, military interventions, civil conflicts – on the popularity of the government or the army will also belong to the scope of this workshop.

The workshop will take place on May the 23rd in the Ecole Militaire, Amphi Moore.
