Can Millennials change the way US and Russia view each other? | Russia Direct

The world is not only on a geopolitical threshold, it also on a demographic threshold. Members of Generation Y (the so-called “Millennials”) are coming of age in the 21st century, replacing members of Generation X in leadership positions in the field of diplomacy and international relations.

Demographic and geopolitical changes are closely connected and cannot be analyzed in isolation from one another. A new generation will become, if not fully responsible for establishing a more just world order, at least an important participant in this process and responsible for safeguarding its continuity.

Importantly, geopolitical events at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century that accompanied the maturing of these Millennials have been influencing their views of the world. Understanding how Millennials see the world around them and what impact their perceptions would make on international relations, then, is of paramount importance for understanding the future of international relations.

The Ukranian crisis indictates that the world is on the threshold of a tectonic shift in international relations, as Millennials see it. In fact, it revealed many controversies in the established system of international relations. Because of the growing number of casualties in an increasing number of conflicts, talk of the need for a revival of diplomacy and a “New Yalta Conference,” literally or figuratively, where international balance would be reestablished, has become unavoidable.
