The mission of the Brzezinski Institute on Geostrategy is to examine the unique interaction of history, geography, and strategy, with a goal of developing policy-relevant analysis and recommendations. Geostrategy incorporates both geopolitics and historically rooted impulses in the formulation of prescriptive long-term geostrategies. The Institute seeks to further the study of geostrategy and to develop a new generation of strategic policy thinkers in the United States and abroad.
The Zbigniew Brzezinski Annual Prize and Lecture was made possible by a generous endowment gift from the Smith Richardson Foundation.
