The World Political Forum in Yaroslavl, which this year has become a more ambitious rostrum for an opinion exchange between politicians, experts and businesspeople in time can reach the Davos Forum level, the director for the Center for Post-Industrial Studies said.
The Forum will be held in Yaroslavl, 250 km northeast of Moscow, on September 9-10. It will have four sections: the State as an Instrument of Technological Modernization, Democracy Standards and Diversified Democracy Experience, New Challenges and the Concept of International Law; and Regional Systems of Global Security.
"At the last forum the discussion on subjects was too short", Vladislav Inozemtsev said, adding: "This time it will last two full days and include presentations as well as discussions of definite problems. I think we're going in the right direction and maybe we will reach the level of Davos [Forum], when three or four days would be given to discuss issues with government officials."
One of the Forum's main subjects will be Regional Systems of Global Security. World security issues are highly important nowadays and need to be solved. Inozemtsev says there are no serious initiatives at the top level (UN and other international organizations), so the regional organizations of the EU, NATO and others are pulling ahead.
Inozemtsev is skeptical about the promotion of the European Security Treaty suggested by Dmitry Medvedev. The Treaty will be discussed at the forum.
"It is very difficult to change the present structure, something attractive must be suggested and this project is not attractive", says Inozemtsev.
