Future of Geopolitics Program
The international order is increasingly under pressure. Revisionist states, emerging powers, and new threats proliferate, as skeptical publics on both sides of the Atlantic are questioning the benefit of the international system their countries helped create. To better understand, adapt to, and shape this reality, GMF’s Future of Geopolitics program implements convening and thoughtful analysis regarding the changing global landscape. Beyond regional and domain specific topics, the program also focuses on interpreting domestic developments in the United States for a European audience, emphasizing how political and societal dynamics impact American transatlantic and global engagement.
The Future of Geopolitics Program in Focus:
GMF’s Future of Geopolitics Program addresses these developments through its Global Disorder, Across America, and Understanding America programming.
GMF’s Global Disorder work focuses on research and analysis surrounding the numerous global challenges currently facing both Europe and the United States. This includes, Power Politics in the 21st Century, Democracy and Geopolitics, and Disruption and Opportunity.
The Across America initiative takes European officials and foreign policy conversations outside of Washington, DC, engaging leaders across public, private, and non-profit sectors at the state and local level on policy issues of international and transatlantic importance.
Understanding America (UA) unpacks, analyzes, and translates trends in the U.S. to allies and partners in Europe, as well as to experts and officials in Washington. The United States remains the preeminent global superpower and guarantor of the international order. Properly understanding U.S. domestic trends is critical in understanding the future of transatlantic policy making and global engagement in the United States.
