About the Programme

Recent events have refocused the broader public attention towards their local standards of life and jobs, while global investors shift capital and financial transactions from one region to another gaining simultaneously from various countries’ market opportunities and a pool of labour. The financial globalisation and supply-chain integrated systems led to the complexity of understanding sufficiently well what the transmission channelling of accumulated worldwide wealth is in modern days. Furthermore, the digitalisation, robotics and artificial intelligence that are the innovative engines of the advanced economies are adding more hurdles to clearly comprehend the gains of local societies that contribute to this phenomenon. Overall, this is considered to be causing the populist movements in Western countries, where certain proportions of the societies feel unjoining the rest and make the policies of national governments more intricate.

The Geo-economics programme aims to observe and analyse this economic phenomenon, provides a public platform for debating it via an organisation of topical events and publications. Geo-economics differs from geopolitics in a sense that macroeconomic and microeconomic data applied in the research will exert an influence on taken decisions. The major objectives of the programme are to reach a wider audience for discussing such global and regional consequences of the financially-globalised-era led by the financial centres as the City of London, and explain any de-globalisation actions taken by governments and societies.
