Mistra Geopolitics video: Navigating towards a secure and sustainable future

At a time when the world map is being fundamentally redrawn in terms of interests and interactions – we must reconsider established political concepts, institutions and forms of international cooperation. Disruptive times are full of uncertainties and risks, but also opportunities and hope.

Climate change, geopolitics, security, societal transformations, low-carbon economy, trade, and international cooperation. Experts in these areas need to be brought together to understand the new risks, opportunities and uncertainties. This is exactly what researchers of Mistra Geopolitics are doing – connecting the dots.
