Centre for Geopolitics

Providing historically-grounded approaches to enduring geopolitical problems.
 

We focus on understanding questions of state and institutional formation, disintegration, interaction, and competition, globally and across key regions of the world.  We approach these questions from perspectives deeply grounded in history and place-specific expertise across four main types of ‘orders’.   

  • Middle Eastern and Eurasian Orders - Analysis of issues and questions rooted in the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, or the former USSR 
  • European Orders - Analysis of issues and questions rooted in Europe
  • Indo-Pacific Orders - Analysis of issues and questions rooted in South, Southeast, or East Asia, as well as Oceania
  • Global Orders - Analysis of issues and questions of truly universal scale and scope
