Geopolitics: Reshaping Geopolitical Landscape

DAY TWO, 11:00-12:15

The panelists are called upon to exchange their views about the ongoing transformation of the geopolitical landscape. The political influence of emerging economic powers, such as China, India and other countries, has increased over the past decade and is expected to grow in the future. Ongoing transformation of the G-8 into the G-20 is one illustration of this trend. The world is becoming more diversified, both economically and politically.Our panel, which is comprised of prominent politicians and political analysts, will discuss issues such as the following:

  • Is a new, multi-polar geopolitical landscape already a reality, or is it still merely a desire among rapidly developing nations? What is the time frame for this transformation?
  • How should international political institutions be transformed given the rapidly changing geopolitical landscape?
  • What are the implications for global security?
  • Is there really a trend toward multi-polarity, or will we see either a reincarnation of US political dominance or the emergence of a new global leader? What is the role of China in the geopolitical system?
  • What is Russia’s role in the new “world economic and political order”? How is Russia perceived in the West and the rest of the world?
