Islamabad: The world is witnessing a tectonic shift in the balance of power and centres of influence in international relations. The transformation of the international order, catalysed by the changing dynamics among major global entities, has raised questions about the direction of development of the ‘new’ international order, the role of state and non-state actors, and the responsibility of recognised powers for the stability of international security.

This discourse is to be deliberated at length at the two-day international conference to which the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) has extended its patronage. The 2nd International Scientific Conference titled “New World Order: in Statu Nascendi”, is jointly organised by the Institute of Political Science, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland, and the Department of International Relations, Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science and Technology (FUUAST), Pakistan.

Scheduled to be held on June 11-12, 2024 at the Faculty of Social Science, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland, this two-day conference will convene distinguished scholars, policymakers, and experts from across the globe to deliberate on the transformative dynamics shaping the new world order. As part of its engagement, IPS will host a dedicated panel discussion on 'The New International Order as a Chance for the Development of the Global South Countries' in Islamabad.

Under the proposed theme, this panel will discuss the prospects and challenges for the global south countries to use the new international order as a chance for an all-encompassing development. The panel will also explore whether a new world order can benefit human civilisational development with a more inclusive approach.
