The Centre of Geopolitics hosts conversations with people across academia, government, civil society, politics and business to discuss major geopolitical issues, past, present and future.
Each of our podcast series, hosted by a member of the Centre, will focus on a wider theme in a number of different historical and geographical contexts. We hope to provide original interpretations and responses to the changing world around us.
