The 1st FPCI-GRIPS Public Forum “Geopolitical Landscape: Update on the Russian Invasion of Ukraine and its Impact on Indo-Pacific Political Security Dynamic ”

 GRIPS is collaborating with FPCI (Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia) in convening the FPCI-GRIPS Public Forum, an open public webinar series where experts and policymakers can discuss the most pressing issues of international affairs and foreign policy with researchers and students across Southeast Asia and Japan.


At the 1st forum of the year 2023, we will focus on “Geopolitical Landscape”, especially on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and its impact on the Indo-Pacific Political Security Dynamic.


What is the implication of the ongoing war in Ukraine for world politics? An important observation is that the war shows the world is multipolar because not all countries condemn Russia or support the war – for instance, India, which has its own position on the war. The war in Ukraine has changed the landscape of global security and the geopolitical paradigm of the Indo-Pacific region. The war has continued to destabilize the world economy with the disruption of the global supply chain and price shocks for commodities such as oil, grain, and raw materials.


Experts from ASEAN, Australia, Japan, etc. will be invited to discuss current issues and future prospects.

Please join us and watch the forum!
