  1. I teach geopolitics in several universities around the world and am interested in your approach

    • Dear Chalom,
      Thanks for your question. Do you mean the approach of my research or the approach of the website?
      Kind regards,

  2. Dear Leonhardt:

    Congratulations! This website is awesome. I am teaching “Geopolitics” in Colombia, and I am studing all the materials here. Thank you!

    I am happy to hear that the contributions on ExploringGeopolitics are useful for teaching geopolitics and will share your compliment with the contributors when I talk to them again.
    Kind regards,

  4. Dear Leonhardt,

    I’m a freelance writer not an academic. Can I still subscribe to your excellent site?

  5. Dear Sir,

    I am writing a PhD thesis in Russian geopolitics at INALCO, National Institute for Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Paris. My work is close to an end and I have developped a new geopolitical approach. Would you be interested in making an e-interview about this topic?
