At the Department of Political Science several researchers are involved in research projects within the Mistra Geopolitics programme.

The theme for IVA’s 100 list 2021 is: ‘From knowledge to sustainable crisis preparedness’. Research with the potential to create benefits for business and society, for example through industrial commercialization, method development or societal impact, is awarded.

Mistra Geopolitics aims to critically examine how the dynamics of geopolitics, human security and global environmental change interrelate. The program concerns how our society needs to be reformed in order to address increasing resource scarcity while securing a positive development and political stability in the 21st Century.
