What is Geopolitics?

At its core, geopolitics examines the impact of physical and human geography on political decisions, strategies and conflicts. This includes the study of territorial boundaries, natural resources, strategic locations and the spatial aspects of political power. Over time, the field of geopolitics has expanded to encompass elements of culture, religion, globalisation and technology. Geopolitics is not static, it is continually evolving with the changing dynamic of the World.

  • Culture - A nation's culture, shaped by its location and values, influences its geopolitical actions and objectives.
  • Technology - Technological advancements, like computers and AI, enhance a country's ability to support its population and gain geopolitical strength through control over intellectual property and key network roles.
