Towards a new research centre at POLIS: the Centre of Geopolitics and Grand Strategy

last modified Apr 03, 2020 09:20 AM

In late 2014, Professor Brendan Simms convened a Forum on Geopolitics at POLIS. The Forum is a first step towards the establishment of a Centre of Geopolitics and Grand Strategy (CoGGS), a new interdisciplinary Centre for the study of grand strategy and statecraft at the University of Cambridge; and their new website is now live

The aim of CoGGS is to provide rigorous training in international affairs, military history, and geo-strategic thinking and to develop world-class strategic thinkers and decision-makers who understand how to calculate risk and recognise opportunity within the appropriate historical and contextual perspectives. 

Once fully established, the CoGGS will represent a seventh research centre within POLIS, alongside the Centre of Governance and Human Rights, the Centre for Rising Powers, the Centre of International Studies, the Cambridge Centre of Political Thought, the Centre for the Study of the International Relations of the Middle East and North Africa, and the European Centre @ POLIS.
