Our approach to geopolitics and international relations surveys the geographic, diplomatic, legal, and organizational factors which influence the relationship between contemporary Muslim polities and various international actors.
The ummatic study of geopolitics and international relations is also a study of the Muslim Umma from a global perspective. It serves as a crucible for new and inventive ways of thinking about these disciplines with the ummatic discourse at its core.
