Geopolitical Aspects of Demodernization


Several countries have experienced demodernization in the last thirty years. In some countries it was triggered by military attack and invasion (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya), in others it was caused largely by internal factors (former Soviet Union). In all of them, however, demodernization has had momentous geopolitical consequences, such as the emergence of a unipolar world and the development of chaos in large regions of the world. This talk focuses in particular on Russia and Eastern Europe as well as on Israel and its neighbours.
