The approach towards a multipolar world will be long lasting, and the international community will probably pass through a deep restructuring, where the global and regional integration will coexist with the contradictory trend of fragmentation and ranking of the world.

While due to globalism there is almost unlikely to have a war between the great powers, the amplification of the asymmetric risks, including terrorism, organized crime and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, is generating more and more reasons for conflict.

Against the background of the rapid decrease of natural resources, along with the accentuated population growth, the battle for strategic resources remained the most stable source of conflict. The fight for them will increase, and the grouping of countries according to their interests, around the new centers of power will increasingly shape more clearly. We will probably assist to the affirmation and increase of their pressure in order to attract, in the sphere of influence, a larger number of countries, so as to occupy a place as advantageous as possible, within the new world order.

This configuration will be determined by the interests, knowledge capacity, the volume and quality of information, technological strength and access to resources.
