for the inter-university research seminar:
Democratic Security Diamond - building a new Pacific order

The seminar will be held on 25th January 2022 at 11.00-13.00 in the online formula on MS Teams
We have completed the implementation of an inter-university research grant entitled The EU’s cooperation with Asian participants of the "Democratic Security Diamond " in response to the challenges for trade and security.
The grant was implemented in 2019-2021 by an inter-university team of researchers from Wroclaw University of Economics and Warsaw School of Economics:
Associate Professor Andżelika Kuźnar, Ph.D. (Warsaw School of Economics) – Head of the team
Associate Professor Sebastian Bobowski, Ph.D. (Wroclaw University of Economics)
Professor Bogusława Drelich-Skulska, Ph.D. (Wroclaw University of Economics)
Associate Professor Krzysztof Falkowski, Ph.D. (Warsaw School of Economics)
Professor Jerzy Menkes, Ph.D. (Warsaw School of Economics)
The subject of the study was the "new order" built by Asian democratic states in the Pacific region: Australia, India and Japan, and their cooperation with the USA, the EU and Great Britain. These are countries that have demonstrated readiness and capacity for institutionalized regional and transregional cooperation. We focused on cooperation in the formulas of the Democratic Security Diamond (DSD) and the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QSD), recognizing that the institutionalization of cooperation determines its qualitative change.
The aim of the study was to answer the question of how the process of building this "new order", a new, multidimensional architecture of cooperation is proceeding.
We were looking for answers to the following questions: - what is the legal framework for cooperation between the parties and its prospects? - what are the potential synergy effects perceived through the prism of the opportunities derived from institutionalized cooperation? - what are the main threats to security and what could be the joint allies' response to threats / challenges? - what is the socio-economic potential of Australia, India and Japan compared to the world and their strategic allies (the EU and its Member States and the USA) and strategic rivals (China and Russia)? - what is the level of economic ties between Australia, India, Japan and with strategic allies compared to ties with other partners? - what is the level of competitiveness of Australia, India and Japan in international trade and what conclusions result from this fact for the trade cooperation of these countries with the European Union?
The main measurable result of the study is the monograph: “Democratic Security Diamond - Building a New Pacific Order”, published in C.H. Beck in 2021.
