Piotr Dutkevich presented the book «Mapping a New World Order: The Rest Beyond the West»
Professor Dutkevich was based on methodology of Hegel and Fichte, dialectical analysis, and noted main contradictions of global policy.
Hegemony vs Multipolarity. Rise of developing countries and increase of economic convergence pose growing threat to established hegemony of traditional centers of power.
Globalization vs Identity policy. In the globalization process both formal and cultural borders between States are becoming blurred. Nevertheless, national identity is essential for any nation. The world needs a dialog between nations, which will help to strike the right balance under existing contradictions.
Wealth vs Poverty. The modern economic model provokes growing inequality, widens gap between rich and poor, weakens democratic institutions and turns a capital into powerful political force.
State vs Market. Several States provide deliberate policy of supporting of national economy, weakening market mechanisms. The world needs economic cooperation.
During the lecture professor Dutkevich was answering the questions from the audience. Subjects of questions were different, for example, development prospects of geopolitics and geo-economics in the context of anti-Russian sanctions, the new political theory following the post-modernism, collapse of liberalism and others.
