AGGIORNAMENTO PERMANENTE
IN PERSON
New year, new world: the geopolitical unknowns of 2023 for Italy and the liberal order

Palazzo Montemartini Largo Giovanni Montemartini, 20 - 00185 ROMA

The pandemic first and then the Russian-Ukrainian crisis have greatly destabilized the world order, accelerating a change of balance already underway and that now seems unstoppable. On the one hand, authoritarian regimes are showing themselves to be masters of the world stage, on the other hand, liberal democracies appear increasingly fragile, crossed by internal and external threats that undermine their very foundations.
 
The West, committed to countering Russian ambitions in the post-Soviet space and to containing Chinese expansion in the Indo-Pacific, is thus facing the toughest challenge: maintaining its world hegemony.
 
In this context of uncertainty and sudden upheavals, how can liberal democracies defend their own international order? How will global competition evolve between local conflicts and a new Cold War? And what strategic role can Italy play to protect its interests?
 
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss these and other questions with Vittorio Emanuele Parsi, political expert in international relations. Starting from the key concepts from his latest book Titanic. Shipwreck or change of course for the liberal order (2022), Parsi will share his thoughts on the latest geopolitical developments and his perspectives on liberal democracies.
 
During the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to discuss the following aspects:

  • the risks and geopolitical perspectives of the year that comes
  • the new international arrangements and the fate of liberal democracies
  • Italy’s role and challenges in the global arena.


Given the nature of the subject, the topics of the meeting will be further refined in the weeks preceding the meeting.
