Istanbul - The world’s economic and sociological structure is changing, and each region has its own propulsive forces shaping this. Although there may sometimes be elements beyond our control, such as natural disasters or underground resources, it is usually trade routes, laws and new economic integration packages jointly agreed to by nation-states that lead the way in these changes. For example, the main reasons for the domestic turmoil in today’s Sudan are a combination of access to natural resources and drought, while it was integration of the coal and steel industry that started the process of the integration of the EU.
