Philosophy and Geopolitics of a Multipolar World

06 Jun , 17:00–18:15
The Transition to a Multipolar World Economy
pavilion G, conference hall G1

The philosophy of multipolarity represents a fundamentally new approach to international politics, where there is no hegemon and no single system of universal values. Instead, it emphasizes the need to consider the philosophical foundations and traditional values of all civilizations involved in the process. The roundtable will include representatives of Western civilization who condemn and reject globalism, hegemony, and the unilateral dictatorship of the West. These so-called Western civilizational dissidents sharply criticize the direction taken by contemporary Western globalist elites. What contributions do the Chinese, Indian, Russian, Islamic, African, and Latin American civilizations make to the development of a multipolar philosophy? Is an alternative West possible? What prospects does the inter-civilizational dialogue among BRICS countries open for the development of international relations? What are the prospects for the de-dollarization of the world economy? What role do infrastructure projects, such as the International North–South Transport Corridor, play in strengthening economic ties between Eurasian countries? How might Russophiles influence the formation of a multipolar world order?
