Stratfor Center for Applied Geopolitics at RANE


The Stratfor Center for Applied Geopolitics is a global center of excellence for geopolitical intelligence and analysis.

Geopolitical risk has emerged as a critical driver of risk and security for corporations and is shaping the global business environment. The practice of applied geopolitics provides a multidisciplinary framework for putting these global events in context, forecasting strategic trends, and making them relevant and actionable for organizations. 

Building on over a quarter century of Stratfor’s application of geopolitical intelligence to the corporate, national security, and educational sectors, the Center seeks to identify, develop, and strengthen best practices in geopolitical analysis and provide tools, methods, and training to organizations and individuals as they integrate geopolitical risk and opportunity into their business practices. 

The Center focuses on three major initiatives:

1. Training, Education, and Certification

The advanced methodologies and rigorous analytics that Stratfor developed and applied to geopolitics are available to participants in our training and certification program. The methodologies covered include qualitative and quantitative methods, scenario development and strategic forecasting, and visualization of geopolitical intelligence.
