Each month, come to Café Des Taxis to have a drink and discussion with your professors and other experts about important events happening in the world. Share your questions and your views, and join the long tradition of politics in the pub.

Geopolitics and the Internet

The concepts of geopolitics and the Internet would seem to be at odds with each other, as the former focuses on the importance of location and the latter shatters distance and territorial limitations. This discussion will focus on the relevance of geopolitics, particularly addressing the limits of the state in an increasingly Internet-dependent policymaking environment. What role does location play in the age of the Internet? Does location continue to shape the strategies of states, as it did before? What is the role of location in politics in a seemingly location-less world? Come discuss these questions, and ask your own.

The lead professor will be David Erkomaishvili, MUP Lecturer on International Relations and Geopolitics.
