The 9th working day began with a lecture by Igor Makarov, Head of the School of World Economy at the HSE Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs. I. Makarov described the main stages of the globalization processes development, outlined the deglobalization reasons and gave the description of this process. Thus, the decline in international trade is not a negative phenomenon, but is quite a natural process, in contrast to its increase in the early 2010s.
The next speaker was Alexander Lomanov, the Chief Research Fellow of the Center for Asia-Pacific studies at the Primakov Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He told about the strategic vision differences between the Western countries and China leading to misunderstandings, as well as about the reasons for such differences. In addition, A. Lomanov analyzed the China's position in the conflict with U.S. and the requirements which U.S. and the European Union makes for China.
The last guest for that day was Alexey Kupriyanov, Research Fellow at the Sector of International Organizations and Global Political Regulation of the Department of International Political Problems at the Primakov National Research Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IMEMO RAS). The lecture was devoted to the concept of the Indo-Pacific region and its place in Russian-Chinese relations. After the lecture the students asked a lot of questions about the further development of the relations in the Asia-Pacific region, taking into account the presence in the concept in the foreign policy agenda of such major players as U.S., India and Australia, and the China’s negative view of it.
