This is a series of talks where each talk is short and one can enjoy the long video in shorter pieces. An absolute must-listen is the convenor’s (Radhika Desai) opening statement which explains so clearly the concept of multi-polarity or pluripolarity.
The second one by Victor Gao brings a new view to how China perceives these changes in our world.
Ben Norton from Multipolarista takes a look at the influence of socialism in the Belt and Road Initiative.
All of these are worth listening to, and it is easy as the presentations are short, and one can come back to it.
