POLITICS PANEL #1 CHALLENGES: NEVER AGAIN: PEOPLE’S DEMAND FOR A NEW GLOBAL SECURITY ARCHITECTURE
16:45 - 18:45
As conflicts between major powers pose an increasing risk to political stability and global security, concepts involving geopolitical pluralism and global governance are becoming an ever more vital cornerstone of the global security architecture. The world is being pushed to the brink of new armed confrontations, and the memory of World War Two, as well as other major twentieth century conflicts, leads the world community to raise its voice against the mere possibility of a new global war. Possible concepts enabling better cooperation between major powers and other crucial stakeholders in common global and regional security shall be highlighted during this panel. Its participants will focus on ongoing and potential conflicts, and will particularly deal with strategies and approaches for overcoming tensions, for example, in the Middle East, and mitigating the risks of possible confrontation, for example, in Eastern Europe, as well as identifying possible terrorist threats worldwide and developing new peacemaking solutions.
