Latest publication launch – Crossing the Geopolitical Rubicon: Assessing the Risks in a post-COVID Age
We are excited to launch our newest publication in collaboration with KCL International Relations Today! The report aims to discuss the different risks associated with a post-COVID political future in different regions. Contributors will use regional geopolitics as a base for their articles and link them with other forms of risk i.e., financial risk, political risk, environmental risk.

At GPRIS we have a passion for exploring how risk is identified, analyzed, and managed by governments, corporations, NGOs and other stakeholders at all levels from the local to global. Through our offering of speaker panels, networking events, and workshops, we create an environment of opportunity by connecting passionate students with experts in this booming industry.
