Mistra Geopolitics is a research program with the overall goal to critically explore the interaction between geopolitics, human security and global environmental change. In a world characterized by growing uncertainties, the program brings together diverse disciplines and research approaches spanning peace and conflict; human security; global environmental governance; global environmental change; and the effectiveness of domestic, regional, and global policy-making.
The program includes a Research School, which is hosted by the Department of Political Science at Stockholm University. The Research School offers training for the next generation of scholars in methods, theories, and collection data for advanced analysis of geopolitics and sustainable development. The training includes courses on environmental change, geopolitical challenges and environmental governance, as well as regular seminars where senior scholars offer feedback on doctoral students’ work and where issues related to policy outreach and research communication are debated.
