Grand strategy is back in international affairs.  We often call this 'geopolitics,' but what does the term really mean?  What are the geopolitical outlines of our world in 2023, and how should we understand the intensifying global competition we see around us?  Join Tom de Fonblanque, former Deputy Head of Geopolitics at the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) for some personal reflections.

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled with lunch* on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP student to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by Q&A.

*RSVP required. Lunch will be served at noon. We will try our best but cannot guarantee accommodation for all dietary restrictions.
