The Language of Diplomacy in a Multipolar World

15 Jun , 15:00–16:15
The World Economy at a Global Turning Point
Congress Centre, zone E, conference hall E11

How should we build relationships with different countries in a polycentric world order and in conditions of Russia's pivot to the East? In what language should we speak to representatives of different countries, cultures and civilizations? Who should be the main driver of Russia’s humanitarian foreign policy – the state sector, business, mass media or the people's diplomats? Why has the history become a battleground and how can we combat the reinvention of historical memory?
