[How to get there]

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Refleks Project and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) take great pleasure in inviting you to a conference:

The Rise of the East:
Power Shift from the West to the East

Global power relations are changing, and new states are taking centre stage in world politics. The footprint of Asia, and particularly China, in the fields of economy, the environment and increasingly also politics is becoming increasingly salient. Ours is a multi-polar world, with more and partly new centres of power. The new economic and political great powers have rapidly become highly significant for our own part of the world. The conference The Rise of the East will explore these developments and the consequences for the West and for Norway.
