On Chatham House and Global Challenges

June 21, 2019

INSOR draws Russian readers’ attention to the Chatham House report “Ideas for Modernizing the Rule-Based International Order” along with the annual Chatham House  London  Conference. The Institute addresses to Russian experts to look closer at a variety of global challenges to find appropriate solutions rather than to focus primarily on regional conflicts and geopolitical dispositions. In this wider domain it’s useful not to ignore analytics and recommendations of the leading think tanks about global challenges and global governance – even with their criticism about Moscow’s politics.
