Foreign Policy Concepts brings together unique voices in foreign policy and international affairs. Our contributors are respected thought leaders who come from rich and diverse intellectual and political backgrounds. We analyze and look at global affairs in the context of change in the balance of power both geopolitically and geo-strategically.

Some of the key issues in global affairs and foreign policy that we cover include the rise of the East, China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in tandem with the emergence of Beijing-led global institutions, changing dynamics in the Middle East brought about by the US invasion of Iraq, and rising Iranian influence.

We also examine the future of American leadership in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe as new challenges are posed to America’s ability to exert influence and impact the outcome of events.

Global East-Global West is short blog posts that put into perspective key foreign policy and geopolitical developments that define the dynamics in the emerging competing geopolitical blocs in Western and Eastern hemispheres. They explain what these current developments mean for regional countries and how they can impact their economy and standing in global affairs.
