“There’s no question that the post-Soviet world order is undergoing a seismic shift.” – as a forecast of the Global Security Review says. The establishment of a multipolar world order where power is once again evenly distributed may seem like a far-fetched idea for some, however, the tendency of small steps towards states gradually questioning the legitimacy of a system based on the supremacy of the United States of America is indisputable. The question we seek to answer is: which fields furnish an opportunity for rising powers to step into the spotlight? Therefore, we have chosen bodies of the United Nations and International Organisations with relevant topics that may provide a heated debate to participants from all over the world to get to know these areas and answer our question.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization shows characteristics mainly that of a normal international organisation, however its potential, its vision and some of its recent trends pointing towards closer cooperation opposing western dominance gives plenty of reason for western powers to keep track of its activity. These states might be able to cooperate against 21st Century challenges or even be those challenges to one another. Either way, they have much to talk about.
Brief topic: The phenomena of ’illiberal democracies’ questions that only liberal democracies can thrive and succeed. The Council of Europe’s main focus shall be to find a way to promote democracy and the rule of law without interfering in a nation-state’s autonomy as well as to bring a healthy balance between economic success and individual freedom.
