Di Dongsheng attends the "Dialogue of Continents" seminar on the new geopolitical order


On November 4, 2020, Professor Di Dongsheng, Vice Dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University of China, and a China Forum expert, participated in the 2020 “Dialogue of Continents” online conference.  The  session “A New Geopolitical Order?" which Professor Di took part in was also attended by Henry Farrell, Professor of International Relations at Johns Hopkins University, Giorgi Kvirikashvili, International Advisor at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and former Prime Minister of Georgia, and Jonathan Hackenbroich, fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations. The participants discussed the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on globalization, the post-pandemic world order, the role of central governments, and major challenges for the future, among other topics.


In his remarks Professor Di Dongsheng believes that a stable global strategic economic order in the future should be achieved through the "Grand plurilateral negotiations" to establish the order and principles of the mid-21st century. Negotiations and coordination between the United States and China can be conducted around the global economic, trade and financial system; in terms of security and politics, it should be trilateral negotiation and consultation between the United States, China and Russia. The arrival of the Biden administration provides a valuable window of time for such a "US-China+1" plurilateral negotiation. 

The “Dialogue of Continents” is an international conference on the world economy organized by the Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee and the Hamburg Institute of International Economics, with three held so far. Participants have included government officials, policymakers, leading academics, technological innovators and business leaders, among others.
