Note: We are moving slowly but definitively towards a multipolar world and the growing economic and political weight of certain nations creates new demands for global decision making. The ordinary discourse is about Europe as regional block and individual countries (China, India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa). Is the multipolar world of the future a multipolarity of states or a multipolarity of regions? Will individual countries increasingly be forced to seek alliances in order to defend their position in international relations? Is it in the interest of the emerging individual countries to seek regional alliances (Brazil in Latin America, India in the South Asian subcontinent) in order to strengthen their position? What are its implications for current power relations, for individual states and for global governance and how should this development be considered? , We are moving slowly but definitively towards a multipolar world and the growing economic and political weight of certain nations creates new demands for global decision making.
