About the Conference

Amid the deglobalization of the world economy and politics, the shift of governance and regulatory institutions to the regional level, as well as the rise of nationalism in the foreign policy practice of many countries, the influence of the East on the world development remains high. A deep understanding and a comprehensive assessment of these processes synergized with training of highly qualified specialists with cutting-edge competences are important academic and practical tasks.    

The conference aims to discuss the main trends shaping the world development amid the deglobalization and regionalization of the world economy and politics, as well as search for mutually beneficial directions of cooperation by experts of different countries.
