The Rise of the East
After the Second World War states have established a new balance of power in the international community that is now challenged by the growing power of the states in the East, namely China. The importance of the Asian region in international relations is steadily growing. On one hand, we have the USA that is taking a protectionist turn with their politics and are slowly moving away from the international arena on important topics such as climate change and trade war, and on the second hand there is China entering global markets through investments and the new silk road. China is also geopolitically important since is situated on the eastern part of Asia – neighbouring not only with raw materials rich central Asia but also Korea and Japan on the East and Russian federation on the North. Thus is it really important that the European Union member states chose one, united strategy, even though the reality and interests of member states are quite different. On these years’ edition of Salient, we will dive into the interesting topics regarding the changes in the relationship between west and east through economic and political lenses, cybernetic threats and regional strategy of ASEAN member states towards nuclear energy.

1+3 FORMATAPPLY NOW
Our conference Salient has always been known because of the quality of content that we have prepared and presented in a new and innovative way. It is our wish that with 1+3 format we enable that delegates also participate in the debates with experts. Because of that, we will dedicate the whole first day of the conference to the round tables with experts, policymakers and political representatives that will be followed with three days of MUN and MEU simulations. With that format, we can assure that delegates receive wholesome learning experience, that will give them opportunities to deepen their conceptual knowledge that they can late use in the debates, studies and career.
