About us

Meet the founders and the wonderful group of dedicated volunteers

Launched in 2017, The Geopolitics (TGP) endeavors to become a primary source of journalism, analysis, and commentary on international relations, world politics and a wide range of issues of global importance. We feature the voices of promising academics, policymakers, and local writers from all over the globe. The Geopolitics was created by people who want to be informed and have a deep interest in a broad range of subjects, from history to economics, international development to global terrorism—and aim to make the magazine accessible to all.
