Welcome to the Forum on Geopolitics

Welcome to the Forum on Geopolitics, an interdisciplinary space created by leading academics to consider within their historical contexts the world's most pressing current geopolitical questions. The Forum is a first step in the development of a new research centre, the Centre of Geopolitics and Grand Strategy (CoGGS), which will deepen the study of grand strategy and statecraft at the University of Cambridge, offer innovative opportunities for collaboration with practitioners and deliver impactful engagement with the wider world. We are currently working to fund this Centre and its planned lectureships, studentships and events programmes.
