Ural Federal University: Global and Regional Problems of the Modern World Discussed at the University

Ural Federal University hosted the 14th Scientific-Practical Conference with international participants “Global and Regional Problems of Today: Origins and Prospects. East and West”. This year’s conference was dedicated to the 70th anniversary of European integration and the 110th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution. The event became a platform to discuss problems of integration and disintegration in the modern world, the prospects of European integration and the potential of foreign economic cooperation with China.

“For the Western world, the year 2022 brings together several significant dates that paved the way to European integration: The 70th anniversary of the European Coal and Steel Community, the 65th anniversary of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) and the European Economic Community, and the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Maastricht Treaty on the European Union. For the East, 2022 is also marked by an equally important anniversary – the 110th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution, which led to the fall of the Qing Empire and the proclamation of the Republic of China,” said Aleksandr Nesterov, Head of the Department of Foreign Regional Studies at Ural Federal University, in his welcome speech.

The conference participants spoke about the problems of European integration and the current state of the European Union, about the successful experience of Azerbaijan’s participation in the system of network diplomacy. Turatbek Syrdybaev, Dean of the Faculty of History and Regional Studies at Jusup Balasagyn Kyrgyz State University, spoke about the peculiarities of Kyrgyzstan’s multi-ethnic population and the ethno-political situation in the south of the country. The experts also spoke about the preparation of the Russian embassy to China in the first quarter of the 18th century and about the historical significance of the Xinhai Revolution in China.

In the youth sections the topics were also diverse: from historical processes on the territory of Latin America to economic relations between Russia and China, from the historical politics of memory to the problems of European integration development in relation to individual countries.

In addition, Master’s students of the Department of Foreign Regional Studies were awarded letters of gratitude from the Ministry of International and Foreign Economic Relations of the Sverdlovsk Region and the Special Economic Zone “Titanium Valley” for the successful work on the translation of materials for the Sverdlovsk region Made-in-Ural (National Project “International Cooperation and Export”) and investment proposals of the Special Economic Zone “Titanium Valley” for Chinese partners.
