The Valdai Discussion Club released the report Staying Sane in a Crumbling world.  This was a followup from their report of 2 years ago titled  “Living in a Crumbling  World”

In the Living in a Crumbling wold report, they suggested that multilateral cooperation is on the decline and crisis of international institutions leads to increasing anarchy with each state left to rely on itself to solve the problems of survival.  The developments of 2020 vividly confirmed their hypotheses.

The report itself is a 27 page PDF and is highly recommended to keep on your watchlist.
