Geopolitics and Empire

Gerry Kearns

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a brief prospectus for a progressive geopolitics that can challenge both the ideals and the account of reality offered by conservative geopolitics. It begins with the ideas of Kropótkin, Kingsley, Hobson, and Reclus, but rejects any notion of a single civilizational scale. It argues instead for a progressive geopolitics defined by an understanding of global interdependencies, the obligations of human solidarity, and the claims of international human rights.

Keywords:   conservative geopolitics, progressive geopolitics, global interdependencies, human solidarity, international human rights
