Centre for Geopolitics

Providing historically-grounded approaches to enduring geopolitical problems.
 
On Geopolitics Podcast

We know Belarus as the home of Europe's last dictator, 'weaponising' of migrants, suppression of dissidents, but how much do we understand of the wider context? Dr Donatas Kupciunas joins Ali and Suzanne to explore the background to Belarus/Lithuania/Poland/Russia tensions and what the future might hold.

 

 

Also available to listen and subscribe to on Apple, Spotify and the Centre's Youtube channel.
