À propos du cours

Geopolitics is all around us, it happens every day. The course shows the connection between geography and international relations, the origins of geopolitical concepts and ideas, how countries view the world around them, why their views are different and how space and distance determine economic ties and security concerns. Students, employees of public and private companies involved in international activity, as well as simply curious people can find this course basic, but interesting and useful. This course introduces geopolitics – one of the ways to interpret and explain international relations in the modern world. To do this, you will study the origins of this discipline, as well as its concepts that determined foreign policy decisions in the XX century. After that, we will look at the most recent versions of geopolitics and how some of them can be used for critical analysis. The main goal of the course is to understand the geopolitical approach to international relations and learn how to use it to explain and predict events taking place at the regional or global level. This includes studying theories, using them for case studies, passing tests to assess knowledge and correct understanding of the geopolitical approach. The course has no prerequisites, though it is desirable that the listeners have an interest in international politics, know the world map well and the changes that took place there in the XX century. The course "Political Geography and the Modern World", which is held at the HSE before studying Modern Geopolitics and which was created to prepare students for the study of theories of international relations, can help you with this. The course is for: • Those who are interested in international relations • Students in Politics, Regional Studies and Social Sciences • Those who want to find links and causalities between geography and international politics • Students who like history and who want to know the nature of major international events in the XX century • Those who prefer online format and a quick and basic explanation of international processes • For everyone who wants to know about the world around us The course consists of short video lectures from 6 to 11 minutes, in which invaluable questions are included. An estimated test of 10-15 questions will take place every week. In the end of the online course there is a final exam in the form of test. The course allows you to interpret international events in different ways, evaluate and predict them from perspective of different geopolitical approaches....

The course is indubitably informative, and of great help in understanding the evolution of geopolitics as well has the historical context behind many of the present-day geopolitical equations.

I came to this course knowing nothing about Geopolitics, Professor Skriba did a tremendous job to explain not only the origin of Geopolitics but also how historical events helped to shape and mature the different schools of Geopolitical thoughts that have developed throughout history. Although it is a 9 weeks course, it contains just enough information to keep one engaged and interested in the topic. I highly recommend this course!! Thank you Professor Skriba!

Thanks a lot for this unforgetable and interesting experience, really I learned a lot and the expositions were absolutely great, because even if I am historian, you need to manage the key terms in geopolitics to understand better the world because it changes constantly.

My suggestion is you should open more courses like this and promote because is a great tool for everybody.

Gretings from Lima, Peru and see you .

Fascinating journey from the past through to the future.

Done academically, with-out overt partiality to any ideation/s.

Engaging professor, clear video highlights - explained in notes in alternative explanatory language.

The references are astounding.

Vast majority of txt was wonderfully amazingly accurate.

WORTHY OF TIME, especially if you are one who flourishes in the Activity of Thinking.

Great course to gain a basic understanding of Geopolitics as a beginner with no prior knowledge of the subject. Andrei Skriba is a great teacher and overall easy to understand, it however would've been nice to have a couple more guest speakers as the lessons including them were very interesting!

Overall a great course to get you started on the subject.

I have learnt to see things from different perception. Now it will be much more easy to understand why states behaves differently in certain situation. There is mystery about what Russia or China does or will do is quite clear now.It is really important to understand others perspective ...

Excelente perspectiva de como ver la geopolítica mundial y bajo la mirada de los tres principales actores geopolíticos a nivel global; también el análisis del surgimiento de otras potencias que vienen a balancear el monopolio geopolítico que domina el sistema internacional.

Uno de los cursos más completos que he tomado en la plataforma, exposiciones precisas e informativas, lecturas acordes a la lección, y acceso a libros imprescindibles. Lo recomiendo ampliamente, dado que es el recorrido histórico de la geopolítica.

This is an eye-opener, not just for people who want to craft their own answer to the question, "What's happening in the world?", but for EVERYONE. As mentioned, in this day and age everyone should get into Geopolitics.

The course provides a useful introduction to global level Geo-politics. It does not cover the regional or sub-regional levels.
