Global Strategy Conference 2023

“Securitized World Order and New Security Spaces”

22 – 24 March 2023 | Budapest, Hungary



This is an era in which the existing international order, established just after the bipolarity of the Cold War, is tested by unforeseen risks and threats as well as protracted crises and conflicts that cause great losses. The order strains its capacity in these conditions. In these circumstances, it is essential to consider how this order would evolve and what kinds of roles that states should shoulder to maintain stability, security and prosperity within their own new/renewed unique place.

States have become more aware of the value of the priority area of ​​national interest in determining their position. Securing national interests in an uncertain world means helping to create a framework for the international system that can provide useful solutions to the challenges of articulating and protecting the self-worth of people in different parts of the world through the transformation of conventional policies and conventional approaches.

In this order, in which national actors and processes and international dynamics are evaluated together, international policies and actions in line with these policies are also built on this plane. Thus, an infrastructure that will help both make sense of the present and shape the near future is envisaged by re-evaluating the traditional security elements in classical international relations.

Attaining national interests against the backdrop of transboundary challenges require multilateral efforts. In an increasingly interconnected world, tackling various hybrid challenges in a unilateral fashion is self-defeating. Nevertheless, the international system also suffers from rising populism and isolationism, as well lack of faith in intergovernmental organizations. Materializing a more sustainable international order requires a re-evaluation of past mistakes and creation of new regional and global security spaces. Projects and frameworks are needed to rebuild trust and reinvigorate collaboration for mutually satisfying results. Also, it is important to provide outputs for the perception, evaluation and direction of these processes in different layers, with discussions to be held in an open-minded academic environment.

In this vein, the annual Global Strategy Conference series aspires to set the stage for scholarly discussions with a policy-oriented outlook. Accordingly, the first Global Strategy Conference will be held on the 22-24 March 2023 in Budapest/Hungary, to be hosted by the Center for Diplomatic Affairs and Political Studies (DIPAM) and the Hungarian National University of Public Service. The 2023 theme has been determined as “Securitized World Order and New Security Spaces”, with the participation of experts from different fields, the transforming shapes and conditions of many factors of the security phenomenon and its global effects will be discussed in a rich perspective and in a deep analysis environment. The Global Strategy Conference aims to contribute to the international order by providing this environment.
