“I followed the lectures on International Politics at the CERIS-ULB Diplomatic School during the academic year 2017-2018. They gave me access to broad information on current political situations worldwide, including their history and their impacts.Sometimes given in a provocative spirit, these lectures were a great opportunity to see different sides and approaches to politics and thus helped me enlarge my horizon.“
