The DOC’s external project manager, Piotr Dutkiewizc, a professor at Carleton University, is the co-editor of Eurasia on the Edge, recently published by Rowman & Littlefield, and endorsed by DOC Research Director Vladimir Popov:
Eurasia accounts for just over one third of the land area of the globe, but is home to over 70% of the world’s population and makes up nearly 60% of global GDP. Immanuel Wallerstein once predicted that future political and economic alliances will divide Eurasia into two blocks: China and Japan together with the US will form one center, whereas Europe, Russia and India will form another. A different view is that Chinese “One Belt, One Road” initiative will unite the whole Eurasian continent. This innovative volume discusses another perspective that may be more attractive than the first two.
