During the events, a wide range of issues related to international security was discussed. The new-type COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on international relations. The epidemic has intensified the struggle for world leadership, the rivalry of the superpowers and regional powers for a place in the new post-pandemic world. In particular, the already difficult relations between the US and China have worsened. In the context of global confrontation, a new bipolarity is forming, in which regional players play an important role. In this regard, building a system of international equilibrium is becoming a priority issue that the international community has to solve.

University Consortium is a partnership project of American, European, and Russian universities, aimed at strengthening mutual trust between regions. The project forms an inter-regional network, the purpose of which is to stimulate the dialogue of students, faculty, and policy-elites of the USA, Russia, and European countries.
