Latest publication launch – Crossing the Geopolitical Rubicon: Assessing the Risks in a post-COVID Age
We are excited to launch our newest publication that is scheduled to be published in 5th October 2020 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.
Who are we
KCL Geopolitical Risk Society is the only student society dedicated solely to intelligence and political, security, environmental and financial risk at King’s College London and is one of the only society’s of its type in the UK.
Our aim is simple. To educate GPRIS members on how political and security risks affect business, NGOs, investors, and society at large. From the ramifications of human rights violations in Xinjiang on sales of tech start-ups in Silicon Valley to the impact of extreme temperature variations in the Peruvian Andes on coffee prices in UK supermarkets, geopolitical risk is all around us in today’s increasingly interconnected world.
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.
Our events focus on all types of risk-related topics from across the globe. From Climate Change to Artificial Intelligence and from Terrorism to Global Health epidemics, GPRIS has an event for you!
