Mission Statement

Applying history to the present in an evolving world: Establishing the Centre of Geopolitics and Grand Strategy at the University of Cambridge

“The longer you can look back, the farther you can look forward." - Sir Winston Churchill, 1944

The Centre of Geopolitics and Grand Strategy is a new initiative of the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge. Our mission is to engage with the major problems of world order, past, present, and future. Applying historical analysis, political science and the experience of practitioners to the world's most pressing geopolitical challenges, we aim to provide a deeper understanding of where they have come from, and how they may evolve.
