ИНТЕГРАЦИОННЫЕ СИСТЕМЫ В ПАРАДИГМЕ ГЛОБАЛИСТИКИ: ОБНОВЛЕНИЕ ИССЛЕДОВАТЕЛЬСКИХ ПОДХОДОВ
The authors of this article use a new paradigm of global studies, in which the idea of globalization as a process of making a uniform world is deemed outmoded. The main trend of development on the planet is identiﬁed as a segmentation into several mega-regions ( integrated systems ) which will compete with each other. The processes of the uniﬁcation of states into integrated systems form an entirely new topology of global space. The planetary structure of the near future is seen by the authors as an integration-confrontational polycentricity. Within the integrated systems, special attention goes to the mutual correlations ( determinateness ) of politics, economics and ideology - a “triangle of integration.” There is considerable potential for research in the ﬁeld of ideology of systems integration, the authors maintain. The article analyzes the “point of vulnerability” of the newly reintegrating system in the former Soviet space: the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU ). Attention is drawn to the importance of meaningful analysis of the political risks of the Eurasian integration. In conclusion, the authors of the article outline prospects for further research on the integration process using the methods of political science and global studies.
