September 11th – The world has changed ten years ago

Today, Sunday, Sept. 11th, 2011, I have a thought for my american friends who suffered from the tragedy.

Ten years have passed but I still remember exactly what I was doing at 02:30 pm when I heard on the radio what had occurred in Manhattan and later in Washington D.C.

I will never forget that particular day!

Since then, we continuously suffered from different geo-political crisis but 9/11/01 will remain the beguining of a new era.

Let’s hope for a brighter future for all of us! let’s continue to fight for Freedom and Peace!

God bless you all!!

What is geopolitics?

What is geopolitics?… This was the ambitious subject of Alexandre Del Valle’s 4 hours conference at the APM.

4 exciting and rich hours we would have like to extend as this topic raises questions about the impact of geopolitics on the economy. In my case, as a professional and teacher in business tourism, how many times have I seen the economy of a destination switch!

A better understanding of the interconnections between strategy / politics / geography would allow us to better manage relationships with partner countries, in a good win-win perspective and risks mitigation.

I’ll let you refer to this brilliant article published by Alexander Del Valle on his blog:,-several-elements-of-a-multidisciplinary-approach.html

Alexandre Del Valle is an essayist, geopolitical scientist, co-founder of the Observatoire géopolitique de la Méditerranée (based in Cyprus), Member of the Conseil de Rédaction de la Revue française de Géopolitique Outre Terre.
