POLITICAL DIALOGUE IN TERMS OF “EXTENDED BIPOLARITY”

Posted in 2017, Issue № 4(58) April 2017, POLITICAL SCIENCE | 0 comments

The article considers a possible way of international relations’ development. The authors believe that since the collapse of the bipolar world, which existed in the times of the Cold War, no solid system of international relations has been formed. The tentative unipolarity with the USA at the head cannot guarantee the world community long-term security. At the same time a true multipolar world can hardly be formed in the near future, as no country alone is capable of competing with the American leverage. The article suggests a hypothesis that new centers of power made up of several states will be formed around common ideologies or political and economic interests. These might once again divide countries into two competing camps, forging the so-called “extended bipolarity”. The role of Russia in the new system is yet to be defined.

FOOD SECURITY POLICY IN ANTIQUE ERA: HISTORIC AND PHILOSOPHICAL ASPECTS

Posted in 2017, Issue № 4(58) April 2017, POLITICAL SCIENCE | 0 comments

The aim of the article is to examine food security policy in antique era. Historical and philosophical examples (taken from the biography of the nomarch of Antilopium noma “Ameni,” the ideal state of Plato, the Bread Laws of Kherson Tavrichesky and the institution of slavery at the model villa of Marc Porcia Catonis), illustrate that such policy was carried out in ancient states. As a result of comparative analysis, the author, one of the first ones in domestic and foreign literature, shows how the controlling body supported socially vulnerable categories of citizens by means of distributing grain and bread. It intensified agriculture, which helped to avoid hunger and stimulate employment. Trade duties were abolished while the import and export of certain kinds of goods were simultaneously banned. Trade and economic blockades were practiced, as the first attempts of food isolation in history.

Posted in 2017, Issue № 4(58) April 2017, POLITICAL SCIENCE | 0 comments

The focus on Russian Far East development announced by Russian president in 2013 and the turnaround of Russian foreign policy towards the East due to contemporary crisis of the system of international relations have created additional prerequisites for close integration between the Russian Federation and its Far Eastern constituent entities and APR countries. The author argues that the Russian Federation’s activity within the framework of BRICS, an internal institution with Russia having been its member for more than 10 years, fits well into the concept of its contemporary eastern policy. In the author’s opinion, given global tensions, BRICS’s institutional opportunities will promote the execution of Asia Pacific direction of Russian policy.
