PR-2023: PANEL DISCUSSION 8. Rise of the Global South

Not so long ago, discussions about the "rise of the Global South" were nothing more than a tribute to intellectual fashion. But radical changes have taken place in recent years: today, two of the world’s five largest economies belong to the Global South, and the phrase itself is increasingly being heard on global platforms. Developing countries are asserting their subjectivity, trying to break the hierarchy that has been developed over the centuries, demanding that former metropolises repent for centuries of colonial oppression and renounce neo-colonialism. How far will this process of subjectivity go? Will the Global South be able to speak with one voice to defend its interests?
