Baker's Dozen: A Conversation About Geopolitical Foundations
MIN READMay 17, 2021 | 04:00 GMT
Geopolitics is a term that is often misunderstood and misused. In the media, anything seen as disruptive between two countries is called geopolitical tension. In academia, there are ongoing debates over whether geopolitics is a tool of power and oppression or an explanatory tool to understand state behavior. Geopolitics as an idea is seeing a rapid resurgence, particularly as U.S.-China "Great Power Competition" is on the rise.
In past episodes of Stratfor's Baker's Dozen podcast series from RANE, we have taken a look at key countries and regions through a geopolitical lens. In today's episode, Rodger Baker is joined by Dr. Len Hochberg, a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and the U.S. coordinator of the Mackinder Forum, to talk a little bit about geopolitics, and why it is useful to add a geopolitical perspective to your own toolkit.
