Strategic and Geopolitical Issue in the Contemporary World is an annual international conference organized by Geopolitical Studies section of Institute of Political Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University in Prague. Since 2011, this conference brings together experts interested in study of geopolitics to meet in the beautiful city of Prague and talk about major issues in the field.
Topic: New Cold War in Global Geopolitics
Date: 24th November 2023
Location: Prague, TBC
Call for Papers: The global geopolitics transforms into two main competing blocs - liberal-democratic and authoritarian - yet again. While the contours of the new Cold War are different from the era of the 20th century known under the same name, it once again plays out in the numerous geographic regions, using divergent tools and means. The interplay between the two blocs or relations inside of them is one of the key forces that will determine the outlook of the global power politics in the years to come. The aim of the conference is to consolidate the knowledge on these processes. For this year´s conference we accept papers on great power competition taking place in three regions - East Asia, Europe and Africa.
Please send your abstracts to by 30th August 2023.
