WRR speaks to French experts about the tilting world order

Recently, WRR researchers involved in the project Tilting World Order met with French experts to discuss a range of relevant issues. The issues addressed included the ambitions of existing and emerging superpowers, the future prospects for multilateral institutions, trade relations and the interconnections between military and non-military domains. The French participants drew on their extensive experience in various parts of the world and at different institutional levels. These exchanges are of great value to the WRR due to the depth of content they offer on a range of key themes.

Through the Tilting World Order project, the WRR examines the emergence of a multipolar world in light of non-military domains of power. These range from essential commodities such as food and energy, to different types of infrastructures and technologies, but also cover intangible domains such as knowledge, migration and narratives. Mapping the dynamics of these domains ideally calls for a variety of different approaches and perspectives. The visit to France, a major geopolitical player both within Europe and beyond, is therefore highly relevant to the WRR project.

The WRR regularly exchanges expertise with other knowledge institutions in a national and international context, one example being its recent working visit to France Strat├ęgie.
