SUBSTITUTION OF TRADITIONAL FORMS OF INTER-CIVILIZATIONAL CONFLICTS ON THE EXAMPLE OF ISIS

Regardless of the tremendous efforts invested by the international community in the maintenance of peace and despite the global trend towards reshaping the system of collective security and the military-political blocs for the fulfillment of peacekeeping tasks, the modern world order is characterized by a high degree of global instability caused primarily by the appearance of new international conflicts. Along with the development of conflict situations, the nature and essence of such conflicts change, actually leading to a more complex internal structure of international conflicts that prevents their resolution through traditional regulatory instruments. Along with this, there are trends demonstrating replacement of traditional conflicts by their new forms – civilizational, ethno-political, ethno-religious and other conflicts. After an evolutionary path from the local, national liberation wars to the regional inter-civilizational conflicts, modern international conflicts have become key factors of political instability on the global stage. The search for ways of resolving such conflicts leads to a confrontation of a different kind, caused by the conflict of interests among the countries of the world involved in solving the problems, which, as a rule, are Russia, China, the European Union or the United States.

Key words: international relations, international conflicts, inter-civilizational conflicts, the model of external control, political system, peacekeeping.
