Section II. Modern world and national interests of the Republic of Belarus

Chapter 1. Main tendencies of the modern world

5. The world entered stage of the cardinal economic, public, military-political and other changes which are characterized by high intensity and dynamism.

Interests of most of mankind are infringed by globalization processes which create new objective reality and in many respects stimulate world progress. At the same time its ambiguous nature and effects generate multiple conflicts of interest. Attempts of forming and imposing of the ideology of globalism designed to change or distort traditional spiritual and moral values of the people are made.

The continuing transition from unipolar to multipolar world order, active forming and formation of the new centers of force aggravate rivalry of the states and the competition of models of future development. The aspiration of number of the countries to use power methods, pressure, economic and resource benefits to promotion of the interests, double standards in interpretation of democratic standards and the principles remains intensity source. Owing to low performance of the existing security systems the tendency to global instability was designated. The growing degree of openness of economies, freedoms of movement of goods, the capitals and manpower, interpersonal interaction washes away side between internal and external political, economic, information processes.

To replace traditional systems of interstate controls and counterbalances supranational and transnational regulators of the world relations and economy come. Awareness of the importance of institutes and mechanisms of partnership at all levels of the international life grows.
