Un enjeu géopolitique essentiel de la démographie : la "loi du nombre"

Abstract : Geopolitical realities are inseparable from population dynamics. Among these, the number of inhabitants at the disposal of the States exerts incontestable effects in the balance of power, effects which result from what we call "the law of the number". To highlight it, let's first examine the lessons of history. Then we will analyze the contemporary world, which in turn sees the "law of numbers", which can be objectively demonstrated by considering international organizations. Finally, the "law of number", by its nomothetic character, thus of law applying in a similar way in time and in space, allows to nourish prospective geopolitical reflections.
