Foreign Policy: Toward a New Security Architecture

The recent conflict in Georgia and the related diplomatic sparring between Russia and the US, has led many to declare the start of a “new Cold War”. Are we witnessing the emergence of a new Russian empire and the return to a multi-polar world, or are we on the cusp of a new paradigm in international relations? Which nations, states, empires, and regions will dominate the geopolitical map of the early 21st century? What are the implications for global stability and markets?
