Can there be a global politics?

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
German and English language

Since the bipolar world order came to an end, foreign policy has become increasingly unclear and at the same time more geographically oriented. Geopolitical traditions and geopolitical thinking have gained new relevance for Europe and for world politics. In the place of the East/West conflict, we are now seeing foreign policy discussions which place greater emphasis on geography, history, culture and religion as influencing factors. At the same time, there seems to be newfound interest in bilateral relations as well as deep concern about imperialist approaches. The North/South conflict, globalization and the dangers of fundamentalism and international terrorism are being discussed and analyzed as geopolitical challenges. What does this new geopolitical thinking mean with regard to an equitable world order and international relations?
