Geopolitics, Geography, and International Politics


Everyone speaks about “geopolitics” in the news and daily conversations. However, what exactly is geopolitics? Even in Academia persists a struggle in the attempt to understand this complex field of knowledge, which is Geopolitics, a fundamental tool to understand international problems.

Why did Russia invade Ukraine? Why is Brazil more committed to South American integration than a sovereign power projection? Why hasn’t Germany reduced its energy dependence from Russia before 2022? What is the real interest of China in Taiwan?
These are several questions that Geopolitics is more than able to answer, crossing geopolitical factors with the international system and political psychology.
In this talk, we will go through the theoretical fundaments of Neoclassical Geopolitics: its main concepts, variables, and model.
