Just before the beginning of the 21st century, bipolar Cold War structure of the world collapsed and the structure of cooperation and coexistence structure was expected to be underway. However, as soon as the start of the new century began, 9/11 terrorist attacks happened in New York. In the wake of this atrocious incident, a new but a different international structure which can be called a new type of Cold War emerged. The 21st century’s new Cold War is multipolar power structure. Various types of extreme attacks and the assertion of unilateral control of the territory, territorial waters and air space have been looming in the world.
Nowadays, we, human-beings, are tackling the most important and most urgent problems of conflicts between communities, regions, societies and countries, aiming to achieve a sustainable society with a spirit of cooperation and self-sustainability. JAMES shall propose the principles and measures which are acceptable to anyone, irrespective of socio-cultural /political position. RIMEP shall be an organization of specializing in implementing the feasible projects (introducing optimum technology and its managerial and/or social system ).
