'One Year of Ukrainian War: What Does it Mean for Global Security and Southeast Asia?' - FNF Indonesia Alumni Gathering 2023
On February 10, 2023, FNF Indonesia held our annual alumni gathering in our office. Following the major subject of FNF Global #ReshapeEurope this year, we asked Prof. Olexiy Haran from the University of Kyiv Mohyla Academy (UKMA) in Kyiv, Ukraine, to speak about the war in Ukraine through the perspective of a Ukrainian and a Ukrainian scholar. We think that the event titled 'One Year of Ukrainian War: What Does it Mean for Global Security and Southeast Asia?' will help us comprehend how the war impacts global security, particularly in Southeast Asia.

Diluting Rivalries between Great Powers
Rising tensions among the great powers are contributing to uncertainty and the security dilemma in the Indo-Pacific region. This raises the question of possible policy alternatives amidst conflictual developments. The role of smaller powers within the region and extra-regional powers, such as European countries, offers the potential to cope with the growing rivalries. In particular, it is significant to examine the position and role of Indonesia, one of the most influential members of ASEAN. Cooperation within the region and with extra-regional powers is needed to ease tensions and guarantee sustainable cooperation.
Global Europe – Global Expectations
Today, we are experiencing that the European Union and its model of democratic societies are losing their worldwide popularity. The growing global influence of actors with values, political systems, and worldviews that are diametrically opposing to those of the EU, as well as the renaissance of geopolitical blocs (as evidenced by the abstention of some states in the UN in condemning Russia's war of aggression), further reinforce this trend.

Planting the Seeds for a Better Future: Inclusive Innovation in Global Food Systems
The global food system is frequently rattled by economic, political, and environmental shocks. The COVID-19 pandemic created an economic environment that pushed millions of people into severe malnutrition, food insecurity, and starvation. The ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine has raised food prices globally. The impacts of the climate crisis continue to put food production at risk.
Ending world hunger will be one of the biggest challenges the global community will face within the next few decades. How, then, can G20 leaders move forward to create resilient food systems in the wake of geopolitical uncertainty?
