New Realities of the New World: A Game with No Rules?

17 Jun , 12:00–13:15
The New Economic Order: Responding to the Challenges of the Time
Congress Centre, conference hall D3
In partnership with VTB Bank

The transformation of the world order has acquired a new quality. The events of recent months inevitably entail systemic changes in the entire global agenda and directly affect both the world order and geo-economy. Sanctions accelerate the long-standing process where the fundamental foundations of international law are destroyed and the ties that made up global trade, as well as economic, financial, humanitarian, and cultural relations are severed. The new reality forces us to look for answers simultaneously across the entire range of issues on the socio-economic agenda. The feasibility of the declared plans for decarbonization is in question. Ideology and values, the principles of the media and information environment, humanitarian and cultural interaction are all being reconsidered. Can we already assess the nature and the depth of changes unprecedented in scale and speed and their significance for Russia? What issues should be front and centre of the state's economic and foreign policy under the new conditions? What are the priorities for big business, financial sector, and culture in the era of the "game with no rules"?
