Professor Johan Galtung will discuss peace and conflict in relation to recent political and economic changes in several areas of the world. After an overview of five major trends—the US empire falling, the West in general de-developing, the state system yielding to a region system except for the biggest states, the "Rest" developing, China recreating the world of +500-+1500—some details will be given about the states mentioned. These include: US inability to handle its crisis, Norway caught between the roles of victim and perpetrator, a possible solution for Central Asia, a possible solution for the Middle East, Brazil and the United States of Latin America, and the possible decline and fall of the communist dynasty in China.
