Forum of Ethnogeopolitics
SubjectInstitute for Management Research
This article introduces the (sub-)field of ethnogeopolitics. Although there is no consensus about the scope and meaning of geopolitics, an operational definition could be sought at the intersection of geography and politics or political science. Therefore, we can tentatively assumethat when cultural factors aretaken into analyses, a kind of geopolitics may be ‘produced’ that may be called ethnogeopolitics. Ethnogeopolitical analyses are often multi-scale and multi-actor. It is not the scope of this article to indicate whether geopolitics and political geography are synonymous. However, certain types of geopolitics exist in the current authoritative typologies of geopolitics: so Classical Geopolitics is regarded as different from Critical Geopolitics. The similarity between ethnogeopolitics and other types of geopolitics remains to beelaborated as this field is still developing. One of the scopes of the new Persian section in Forum of EthnoGeoPolitics is translation of terminology from and to Persian. Regarding its geographical situation and the history of political geography and geopolitics in Iran, Persian language studies and concepts used in them can enrich our knowledge.
