Nicholas Spykman International Center for Geopolitical Analysis
Created in 2022, the Spykman Center is a non-profit, non-political, international organisation dedicated to the study of Geopolitics. It benefits from the expertise of academics, researchers, and practitioners from some of the leading universities and institutes from Europe and beyond. The Center aims to unite students and young professionals to learn and produce geopolitical analysis.

The Center takes its inspiration from the finest geopolitical theorist of the twentieth century, Nicholas John Spykman (1893 – 1943). Together with Spykman's use of geopolitics to offer a deeper understanding of international relations, and based on the works of Professor Manlio Graziano, the Center uses geopolitics as a methodological tool to teach and conduct geopolitical analysis.
