The establishment of the Council on Geostrategy is a hugely important step. In a deeply divided and increasingly  polarised world where our values are tested more than ever, it is important that this new council gives focus and a platform for a strong defence of liberal, enlightened values on the world stage.

– Andrew Bowie MP

Never were we more in need of fresh thinking than in these uncertain times. The Council on Geostrategy will, I hope, be a wellspring of new ideas to strengthen Britain against geopolitical competition, and to combat the global environmental crisis.

James Gray MP

In our long history it has been events, both foreseen and unforeseen , which demand reappraisal and rethink of our life as a nation, both domestically and internationally. Now is precisely that moment again, and in consequence this is what the newly founded Council on Geostrategy has as its mission and clear objective.

The Lord Risby

The Council on Geostrategy is a non-profit organisation. We accept general and project-based funding from institutions, companies and individuals who share our mission and accept our intellectual independence.
