Registration is closed


This Roundtable will be held at Warsaw University by The Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (DOC), The Faculty of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Warsaw and The Centre for Governance and Public Management (CGPM) at the Carleton University.

The round table is part of a DOC-supported research project on Regional and global power distribution leaded by Professor Piotr Dutkiewicz.

Political scientists from the Belgium, Canada, China, France, Italy, Poland, Russia, United States, United Kingdom will discuss and analyse the complex processes which are shaping the future of the world system.

The goal of this research project – by an international team of scholars that will combine rigorous  analysis and policy recommendations –  is to analyze future of power sharing arrangements, com-peting interests in macro-regional and global level and  role of key-state and non-state actors in the process of securing maximum control of capital, labor, resources, global agenda, cyberspace and social media.

Even though any hegemon wants always to keep maximum level of “hegemony” in order to secure better life conditions and stability for its citizens and geo-strategic position, keeping it for a long time is almost impossible in current world order, and therefore any hegemonic power has to engage in a confrontation with multipolarity, represented by ‘the others’. Clearly, the pair of ‘we versus others’ will shape the next years of the world order and this is what will be the topic of the upcoming round table,” explained Dutkiewicz.
