20.05.2015

The 16th Valdai paper “Rising Powers and Revisionism in Emerging International Orders” is devoted to issues of co-operation between established and emerging powers in international systems being in transition. 

The author assesses one of the important reasons why some world crises are resolved peacefully while others through a war, considers the factors why rising powers may not be revisionist, and marks main dimensions that taken together determine whether the revisionist state poses a dangerous threat to the established powers. Finally, the author comes to the conclusion that the fundamental problem of international morality and of international politics is to establish methods of peaceful change.
