EsadeGeo – Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics (Spain)
Esade Business and Law School is a global academic institution founded in 1958. Its mission embraces research, training and social debate in the law and management fields, in which it has considerable expertise. The business school is strongly aware of its social responsibilities in an international setting.
Key aims of Esade’s academic and research activities are to grasp and analyze the global setting and – where possible – improve it.
The creation of EsadeGeo – Center for Global Economy and Geopolitics was a response to the above mission and aims. It was launched in 2010, and it is chaired by Dr. Javier Solana, former EU High Representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy, and former Secretary General of NATO.
The Center performs research on economic globalization and its interactions with geopolitics and global governance; and strives to generate knowledge on the links between business, economic and social leadership, social realities, and global institutions.
EsadeGeo also trains managers in public, business and social spheres, by imparting modules, courses and sessions as part of ESADE’s programs or as free-standing items. In addition, the Center serves as a forum for scholars and political, business and social leaders to debate matters of international importance, and to identify and solve conflicts in constructing new systems of global governance.
EsadeGeo benefits from synergies with many of Esade’s departments, centers and institutes, such as its Institute for Data-Driven Decisions, as well as a wide network of external academic collaborators.
