Restoration, Reformation, Revolution? Blueprints for the World Order after the Russia-Ukraine conflict

... costs of the conflict with Ukraine will limit Moscow’s international influence for a long time; Russia’s claims to the role of a “third pole” in global politics (along with the U.S. and China) will have to be postponed. Russia’s dependence on China will increase despite the West all too likely to counteract this trend. The “reformation” scenario may apparently turn out more stable and sustainable than “restoring” the old world order. Much, however, rests with the path world order reforms will travel in the areas of trade, economy, currency, finance, military, politics, etc. One cannot rule out acute crises stemming from reforms being inconsistent and discrete (for instance,...

... “new détente” that would prospectively consist of a series of mutual compromises all across Eurasia; India and Turkey continuing to “balance” between the U.S. and Russia so as to ensure their rise as great powers in an increasingly complex world order, which will in turn improve their strategic leverage vis-a-vis China and enable them to expand their envisioned “spheres of influence” more sustainably; China continuing to formulate its grand strategy under the unofficial influence of the Mao-era “ Three Worlds Theory ” wherein the People’s Republic as ...
