The Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs invites you on November 13 at 18:00 to participate in the lecture with Professor Glenn Diesen. Glenn Diesen is a Professor at the Higher School of Economics and Adjunct Research Fellow at Western Sydney University. The special quest will make a report on topic “Great Power Competition in the Fourth Industrial Revolution”


Sorry, registration is complete.



How will the socio-economic and military disruptions of the fourth industrial revolution impact great power cooperation and competition? How are manufacturing and global value-chains affected? Can capitalism function as the balance between capital and labour unravels? Will the immense societal disruptions eviscerate political stability? How do the new technologies alter the offence/defence balance in warfare? What will be the role of the state during this great transformation? A technological security dilemma becomes evident as a cautious and responsible approach towards adopting new technologies is not possible as history demonstrates that falling behind on industrial revolutions severely disrupts the balance of power.



The event will be held on 17 Malaya Ordinka St. (Moscow), 1st floor, room 106 (conference room).

Time: November 13 at 18:00
