”The Cold War, like all global political processes, is important to study in order to draw lessons for a better understanding and to preserve world peace. Much of today’s geopolitical tensions have been dragging on since the end of World War II. It is important to draw parallels and look for experiences in conflict resolution. With regard to the past, I consider it vitally important to know in greater detail what multilateralism was, especially the role of international organizations such as the United Nations itself or the movement of non-aligned countries. Thanks to them, conflicts were to some extent contained or prevented from spreading to other regions. They were forums for discussion where different voices could be heard. Their recommendations or resolutions were more respected then than they are today.”
