Dear friends, we are opening registration for the 1st day of the Kortunov Global Affairs Debates!

The Kortunov Global Affairs Debates are the annual project of Creative Diplomacy in association with the RIAC launched over a decade ago in memory of Dr. Sergei V. Kortunov, a Russian political scientist and national identity researcher. Since 2009, Creative Diplomacy and the RIAC have brought together prominent young experts and beginning researchers to conduct annual debates on urgent issues of the Russian foreign policy.
After its tenth anniversary, the project was promoted to the international level, gaining the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University as its partner in 2020.

In 2021, the Debates will take place in the format of discussions on three topics among experts from The Fletcher School, RIAC, and other institutions. In each debate, two sides, each consisting of two speakers, will argue alternative yes/no positions on the question at hand.

The first discussion will begin on September 21 at 18:00 (Moscow time, GMT+3). The topic of the meeting: "Does the rise of China threaten the liberal international order?".
