What is geopolitics?

posted by Lenny Spangberg @ 10:08 AM

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.

As an art-specialist, Christian Monjou had choosen to illustrate these concepts through pictorial artworks from the XV to XVIII centuries, allowing us to discover a quite amazing symbolic.
