The University of St. Petersburg presented a new project of the GORKI center on the SPIEF-2023 site. The Geopolitical Observatory will study the problems of economic development, migration and demography issues, as well as Russia’s foreign policy. The presentation of the innovative direction was given by the rector of the university Nikolai Kropachev and the director of the center itself. They became the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Austria, Professor Karin Kneissl.

The GORKI center had an interdisciplinary team of experts from six scientific areas: economics, law, political science, international relations, oriental studies, and sociology. The rector of the university believes that this is a real breakthrough for the university.

– Our university twenty years ago was disparate: chemists lived separately, physicists separately, international affairs too. And it was very difficult to imagine the creation of interdisciplinary projects. And the example that we are presenting now is just that example of alliance and interdisciplinary support. The center has already started to work and brought together colleagues from different faculties. But there are people who entered the project from other countries, Nikolai Kropachev is sure.

The membership of the geopolitical observatory will be expanded in the future, taking into account the priority areas of the country’s development. It now includes more than twenty experts: Caroline Galacteros, director of the Paris analytical center Geopragma, Glenn Disen, professor at the University of South-East Norway, Artem Andreev, director of the Center for the Study of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Artem Andreev, Head of the Department of Far Eastern History, Director of the Ho Chi Minh Institute of St. Petersburg State University Vladimir Kolotov, Head of the Department of International Law of St. Petersburg University Innokenty Karandashov, Professor of the Department of World Economy of St. Petersburg Nikita Lomagin, Professor of the Department of European Studies of the University of Saint Petersburg Stanislav Tkachenko, Associate Professor of the Department of Sociology of Political and Social Processes of the University of Saint Petersburg Alexander Kuteinikov and others.

The GORKI Center will develop scientific, expert, educational and outreach activities. The experts plan to monitor and analyze the most important problems in Russia and in the world, and want to provide the results of their research to the authorities.

The head of the center, energy analyst and former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Austria, Karin Kneissl, believes that this will help the countries to improve relations.

– I read the western press and I wonder what they write. No matter what projects we are involved in, be it GORKI or any other, it is important that all this is done in order to recreate this institution of diplomacy. We have smart diplomats with relevant knowledge and skills. But we need to do some sharing of practices,-Dr. Karin Kneissl shared her thoughts.
