The 2nd working day of the IX Chinese-Russian Summer School on International Relations was especially eventful.
In the morning participants discussed group projects. After that, they had an opportunity to listen lectures from Professor of Political Science at Wittenberg university (USA), Yu Bin, and the Senior Researcher at the Centre for Comprehensive European and International Studies (CCEIS) at the HSE, Vasily Kashin.
Prof. Yu spoke about the role of the dominance of hard power in the U.S. foreign and domestic political agenda and its impact on the liberal world order.
The lecture of V. Kashin was devoted to the development of relations between the U.S. and China, the causes and possible consequences of the modern conflict and also covered the foreign policy strategies of the two countries.
In the evening the Chinese cultural evening was held. Our Chinese friends prepared a rich cultural program with songs, dances, fascinating Chinese poetry and traditional musical instruments - the transverse flute and the hulusi flute. Russian participants took part in different funny contests, learned to cut typical Chinese paper ornaments and got Chinese sweets for their efforts.
At the end of the evening Chinese students prepared one more surprise - a cake. But this was not the end of the entertainment - somehow there were not enough plates and forks, so the glasses were exploited both as plates and spoons :) Anyway, everyone was happy!
