New World Order conference: integration and multipolarity – Video
PAIGEO’s New World Order international conference was held for the second time this November, and on this occasion it examined the issue of integration and multipolarity. Geopolitical reality has changed in the 21st century: whereas during the previous decades the world had been unipolar with the US as the leading power, today its dominance is being questioned in many aspects by various actors – such as China, India or the ASEAN countries – who all seek to play a larger role in global affairs. The conference aimed to find answers to the following questions: can the bipolar world order return (with new actors), or are we witnessing the rise of a multipolar world order? Can smaller countries become rivals of the US by forming integration blocs? We summarize the event’s most important thoughts.
