Welcome to The Geopolitical Trends Blog ! This blog is a spin-off of my Summer School courses and guest lectures about geopolitics.

My name is dr Leonhardt van Efferink and I am author of The Geopolitical Trends Blog. Based on my research and teaching experience, I explain here how you can analyze geopolitical complexity by focusing on the dynamics between material aspects and the different perspectives on them.

My focus is on geopolitical drivers, geopolitical frames and geopolitical scenarios.
