The Forum on Geopolitics is running a reading group this year on the New Geopolitics in Eastern Europe. Each session will examine a different aspect of the region's shifting geopolitics and encourage a lively discussion based on short suggested readings.

The group is open to anyone with an interest in the politics of Eastern Europe today and will meet fortnightly from 1-2pm, starting on 18th October in Room 119 in the Alison Richard Building.  

The group is led by Timothy Less, the director of the Nova Europa political consultancy, a former British diplomat and an associate researcher at the Forum on Geopolitics, where he is leading a project on The New Intermarium.

Decline reading group end of term report

Jun 26, 2017

In 2017 the Forum on Geopolitics convened a reading group for a series of eight discussions titled: ‘From Thucydides to Trump. Decline in History.’ The reading group investigated the causes of the decline of nations, empires and civilizations, bringing together participants from the fields of history, law, business, public policy, urban studies, physics, and ecology. The group read texts by Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Ibn Khaldun, Machiavelli, Rousseau, Hegel, Nietzsche, and social theorist Joseph Tainter. The texts were chosen for their theoretical power, intellectual rigour, and capacity to shed light on the state of the world in the twenty-first century. In a future effort, the Forum hopes to expand its scope of inquiry by addressing the problem of developing grand strategy in the context of decline.
