Today, YSU Faculty of International Relations hosted the Head of Chair of World Political Processes of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, Professor Marina Lebedeva. She delivered a lecture headed “Modern Trends in World Politics”.
“By saying world politics I understand a complex of both interstate and non-interstate relations. What is happening in the world now? I can say that there is a turmoil in the world in which we live,” - said Mrs. Lebedeva, who has long studied the global political developments.
The Russian specialist touched upon the changes in global politics of the last century. The first is the increased mobility of everything, people are more involved in the international processes, cooperation between the different spheres on the inter-state level has increased, countries form more unions around some initiatives.
“In recent years, the indicators of the impact have also changed. Resources to become powerful are different. We see on the example of Germany and Japan that the most influential countries are those, which have developed economics. Meanwhile, Australia, Norway are trying to occupy the leading position through education. And there are many different examples,” - said Marina Lebedeva.
The professor also spoke about the interstate conflicts. In the end of the lecture students asked the speaker different questions.
