INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
"EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND GLOBAL SECURITY: AN AGENDA FOR 21ST CENTURY
The rapid development and use of information and communications, aerospace, nuclear technology, as well as the active implementation of cyberspace create new possibilities to solve socioeconomic problems, by expanding access to energy, information, knowledge. At the same time, the use of new technologies for destructive purposes leads to an exacerbation of the old threads and the emergence of new ones. The creation of new types of weapons, which is not regulated by bilateral or multilateral agreements, entail a new phase of the arms race. The aggravation of political relations between Russia and the West became an obstacle to the search for optimal solutions. Dialog on Global Security may be a efficient area for recovering the cooperation.
