Developing cooperation

between the European Union

and neighbouring countries

The AlterEurope Master’s Degree programme trains

experts on the European Union and neighbouring

countries, with a firm knowledge of the social

sciences, economics and law, and capable of

parti-cipating in political and economic decision-making

in the public, private and NGO sectors.

The programme is founded upon the concept of

Al-térité or “otherness”: otherness or diversity in

rela-tions between the European Union and neighbouring

states, and in the programme’s interdisciplinary

approach, an asset for future degree-holders. The

AlterEurope Master’s Degree is offered by

Univer-sité Jean Monnet Saint Etienne, ENS de Lyon and

Sciences Po Lyon, members of Université de Lyon.

The rising power of the European

Union’s neighbouring regions

Anticipating Europe’s future development, the AlterEurope Master’s Degree programme foresees a rising influence of the

European Union’s neighbouring states, regarding both EU

policy-making and the various globalization processes.

The EU’s neighbouring regions share a certain number of com-mon problems:

Their geographic proximity linking them via mobilities and flows to European developments and trends.

Countries directly influenced by such EU policies and stra-tegies as the Euro-Mediterranean Project and the European

Neighbourhood Policy.

Security issues concerning Eastern Europe and the Balkans, as well as the Mediterranean region: not only military security, but also, for instance, the security of energy supplies.

The international division of labour and the restructuring of national economies within the framework of globalization and the emergence of new world powers (Russia, China, India and Brazil), modifying relations between the EU and its neighbours.

Training experts on the European Union

and its neighbouring regions

The AlterEurope Master’s Degree programme is designed for

four different student profiles, each with a solid education

(equivalent to a 3-year French licence degree) in geography, po-litical science, economics or law, and focuses on the European

Union’s various neighbouring zones (both to the east and to the south) and their relations with the EU and other European

inter-national organizations, all within a resolutely multidisciplinary

framework.

This multidisciplinarity is designed to complement and reinforce

the students’ initial field-specific education, which, far from

being negated or diluted, is taken into consideration and made the most of throughout the programme, in accordance with the various job profiles available.

Career opportunities

Taking into account…

n the initial field-specific profile that is reinforced during the master’s programme

and because it develops…

n expertise regarding all aspects of relations between the

European Union and its neighbouring countries

the AlterEurope Master’s Degree programme prepares students for the following professions:

International development consultant for consultancies or public bodies acting as interfaces (such as chambers of com-merce and industry in France).

International chargé d’affaires or international development

project manager for a cluster (such as a competitiveness cluster

in France), a regional administration or a large firm.

Research officer of economics and country risk analysis in the banking and financial sector.

Legal expert1 specialized in the EU’s extra-European

rela-tions and international trade law, for a law firm, a company’s

legal department, a consular body or an organization for the development of trade relations.

Project manager in environmental risk management for a private or public entity.

Project manager in sustainable development for the European Union or an international organization in a neighbouring country.

Developer of cooperative programmes for a European Commis-sion delegation, a service of the European administration (notably the External Action Service) or an international organization.

Project manager (consultant) for a humanitarian or

develop-ment NGO in a neighbouring country or region (project auditing and monitoring).

In addition, the AlterEurope Master’s Degree programme pro-vides both vocational and research training, and so also trains students for the research professions. AlterEurope Master’s Degree holders can therefore continue their studies by pursuing a doctoral thesis.

1— At the end of the first year, AlterEurope law students can simultaneously validate the AlterEurope M1 and the Business Law M1 of the Law Department of the Université Jean Monnet of Saint-Étienne, allowing them to take the entrance exam for the École de Formation du Barreau (EFB) law school.
