On 10 October 2020, Professor Korosteleva participated in the virtual Summit of Minds 2020 speaking about the return of geopolitics in a new form, and the urgency to move to a new vision and understanding of the world as more complex, unpredictable and local, where every person matters, and small states should seize the opportunity to define and defend their vision for a more cooperative and sustainable future. Other panel speakers included Mr Kasperski, CEO of Kaspersky Lab; Mr Malige, EBRD Managing Director for Eastern Europe and Caucasus; Professor Karaganov, Dean HSE Moscow; Dr Shvydkoy, Special Representative of the Russian President for International Cultural Cooperation; and H.E. Fried, Distinguished Fellow of the Future Europe Initiative, Atlantic Council. The full programme is available here (please hyperlink it to the enclosed file). The summit also included the launch of a new initiative ’Smart Small States’ Club’, by President Sarkissian, with comments from Thierry Malleret, Managing Partner of the Monthly Barometer; and Professor Frankopan, University of Oxford.
