EsadeGeo

In 2010, Esade launched its Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics, EsadeGeo, chaired by Dr. Javier Solana, former EU High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy. The Center performs research on economic globalization and its interactions with geopolitics and global governance, creating knowledge on the links between business, economic and social leadership, social realities, and global governance.

Its staff of 11, including 5 expert researchers, also provides an interdisciplinary forum where scholars and political, business and social leaders actively debate international matters and their local impact. EsadeGeo also benefits from synergies with many of Esade Business & Law School’s departments, centers and insitutes, such as its Institute for Data-Driven Decision, as well as a wide network of external academic collaborators. EsadeGeo’s external partners include the European University Institute in Florence, Beijing University in China, and the Brookings Institution and Georgetown University in the USA.

Javier Solana's Blog: "El ojo y el párpado"

“We need a new mentality. The world is changing. The relations between the private and public sectors are going to change and companies have the responsibility to know the geopolitical landscape, on both moral and pragmatic grounds”

Javier Solana

President of Esade Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics
Former European Union High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy and Former Secretary General of NATO
