Salient 2020

29 - 30 June, online

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.

ECOFIN

1+3 FORMAT

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.

Security council

Cyber security:

New Global Threat

The Security Council as the most prominent body of the UN has to take care of international peace and security – but how is supposed to do that, when the threat is unseen, unheard of? Where the enemy only exists in the web of the cyber world? That are the questions we want to address in this council on this year’s edition of Salient. We believe that cybersecurity is a big grey area that is not defined enough and thus enables our delegates to find new, unheard of solutions on how to manage this new field of state´s security.

ASEAN plus 3

Nuclear energy:

a move toward sustainability or a global disaster?

When the rest of the world is closing down nuclear plants and deems nuclear energy as very dangerous the trend in Asia is very different. Because of the need for more energy, developing economy and the high number of population, Asian countries decided to build more and more nuclear plants. Is this the correct answer to the question of economic development? Just a slight mistake and the whole region is destroyed – the soil, air, water that will have the impact also on the other parts of the world. How to tackle and keep the balance and find solutions to both problems – need for more energy and how safe is nuclear energy is the question on which our delegates will be looking for an answer.

Ecofin

EU-China:

Strategic Outlook - Investments and intellectual property

Because of American protectionism and turning away from international trade flows, the European Union decided that is important, that they find new international trade partners so the dependency on the American market is less prominent. But, how do you trade with the state that is repressive, but at the same time an economic superpower? How do you overcome breaches of the international norms about investments and theft of intellectual property? All these will be addressed in the Strategic outlook that will be a final document of this committee and will hopefully save such an important relationship as is between EU-China.
