Russia and the Struggle Against Neo-Colonialism. An Expert Discussion
Valdai Club Conference Hall, Tsvetnoy Boulevard 16/1, Moscow, Russia
List of speakers

On February 16, the Valdai Club hosted an expert discussion, titled “Russia and the Struggle Against Neo-Colonialism: The End of the Western Dictate?”

The problem of global equality and the right to development is one of the key issues in modern world politics and economics. The gap between North and South, between the collective West and the rest of humanity, persists despite all efforts to overcome it during the half century after the collapse of the colonial system. Closing this gap is now one of the important elements of the Sustainable Development Goals put forward under the auspices of the UN. However, these goals are unlikely to be achieved within the next decade.
