Global politics has rarely been more interconnected, important, yet seemingly beyond comprehension!
But fear not, Hagai - globally recognised expert on Geopolitics - will in this mini-course help us understand and navigate these choppy waters! He will take us on a journey visiting Trump, Putin, North Korea, China and the Hong Kong protest, the Middle-East, and Europe and ‘the B word’, showing the patterns in the chaos, and what trends to look out for in the coming months and years.
This is a rare chance to experience a Hagai daytime course.
Session 1 - Geopolitics 2020: What it looks like, and how we got here: Including populism and the Dictator Democrats!
Session 2 - Russia: The UK-EU-US v Russia dynamic.
Session 3 - US-China: Does trade war equals real war?!?
Session 4 - North Korea, India, Pakistan: Why these hotspots matter, and their role in the growing US-China global strategic contest.
