The Geopolitical State of Affairs – What role can value-based partnerships play?
As the world already combats the effects on the covid-19 pandemic on myriad policy areas, the war in Ukraine poses challenges both in the humanitarian realm and across the policy sphere. This crisis in particular highlights geopolitical questions regarding value-based alliances and dealing with autocratic systems. The panel on the geopolitical state of affairs aims to deal with these greater structural questions about these and other difficulties and to explore how G7 cooperation can go beyond the traditional policy areas and strive towards deeper unity when global challenges ramp up.
