Prof. Graziano Publishes Article on the Geopolitics of Democracy
|Thursday, 04 October 2012|
Professor Manlio Graziano published an article entitled "Towards a Geopolitics of Democracy" on Washington DC's Center for International Relations' online publication as well as on the Eurasian Review of Geopolitics Heartland. Looking at the democratic process through the lens of geopolitics, Professor Graziano advocates for a systematic study of the reciprocal influence of geopolitics and democracy. He predicts that the recent phenomena of the Arab Spring and of the acceleration of the European integration process may prompt that approach. Two Master's candidates in the International Relations and Diplomacy program at AGS contributed to the English translation of this article - Kryssandra Heslop (class of 2013) and Cullen Stewart (class of 2012).
Some of Manlio Graziano's latest books include Essential Geopolitics: A Handbook (2012), and The Failure of Italian Nationhood (New York, Palgrave MacMillan 2010). An interview of Professor Graziano focusing on his expertise on geopolitics recenly appeared on the exploringgeopolitics.org website.

The knowledge I acquired at AGS as well as my inter-personal and diplomatic skills, developed during my AGS days, come in handy today when dealing with different government officials, staff from various UN agencies, and even my colleagues in UNESCO who come from different cultural backgrounds.
