Geopolitical and Strategic Studies (GPSS)

The Department of Geopolitical and Strategic Studies (GPSS) works to understand the strategic objectives of international actors and their relationship to the Muslim World. GPSS approaches the rise of regional and international powers by studying and determining the global strategic objectives of eight countries or regions as well as their specific strategic objectives in the Middle East and the Muslim world, in addition to surveying major strategic studies and analysis for these countries that aid in understanding their objectives, strengths and weaknesses. These studies are designed to present complex global challenges in a format that is accessible and issue oriented.
