Russia in a Polycentric World
The monograph studies international political and economic aspects of the evolution and future developments of the polycentric world that began taking shape in the late 20th-early21st century. An analysis of fundamental changes in the global economy, politics, and world order is presented. The basic trends and problems of a polycentric world are examined, as are global and other important regional centers of power, and international relations in the most problematic areas across Russia’s borders. The main focus is on identifying the opportunities, challenges, and risks Russia faces in the polycentric world now taking shape.
