A CONCEPTUAL LOOK AT GEOPOLITICS


27/11/2016





The geopolitical developments of the last century have manifested as conflicts in the peripheral one of Eurasia. Eurasian and Middle Eastern countries with their rich energy resources and the Western countries which have the economic power to purchase these resources have been at the centre of geopolitical struggle. Furthermore, Africa and South America, which have been left outside of the conflicts waging at the peripheral one of Eurasia but which have always felt its effects are today considered to be a part of global geopolitics.A fundamental element of geopolitics is awareness that geographical conditions contribute to the power of defence and that people shaped by geographical conditions are compatible with the relevant geography. Napoleon highlighted the importance of geography when he said “Knowing the geography of a country is knowing its foreign policy.” From ancient times until the present, empires and states have used the physical resources of their environment to acquire new land in order to access new resources. At the root of practices employed by dominant powers for centuries lie geopolitical approaches. Past empires have applied a geopolitically universal dominant power strategy and have preferred forming a regional balance of power to protect their geopolitical dominance against each other. Furthermore they have kept countries dependent on them close through diplomacy and trade interests and have considered direct military intervention as a last resort.
