Pallas Athene Geopolitical Research Institute was set up in the spring of 2015 with the aim of establishing the research bases of geopolitics as a discipline in Hungary. Since the beginning, our researchers have published nearly 600 articles and studies. We would like to believe that these articles have, to some extent, contributed to the development of the Hungarian scientific life or promoted the creation of common sense knowledge.
Our articles are published on the professional website www.geopolitika.hu, which was launched in the summer of 2016. Some of our other studies and abstracts promote the work of the Central Bank of Hungary and professional working groups related to the Hungarian Government. Our website www.geopolitika.hu, with lots of studies written by PAGEO Research Institute, has already been visited by 120,000 readers from 195 countries of the world for the first six months since its launching.
Our English-language site was started in March 2017 so that our international partners can read all our articles in English. Being aware of the increasing potential in the East Asian region, PAGEO Research Institute focuses on six East Asian countries: China + Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, India, Singapore and Indonesia. This is the region that has undergone the most successful transformation in the past decade and accounted for 87% of the GDP and 78% of the population of Asia in 2010.
Our researchers specialise in the countries in focus and are proficient in the language of the given country. Besides, we endeavour to enhance the professional knowledge base of the Research Institute with the work of Hungarian and regional external colleagues and of researchers visiting us from East Asia under the “visiting fellow program.” Our purpose is that, by focusing on East Asia, we build one of the best research institutes in Central and Eastern Europe and get onto the map of the best and the most innovative research institutes in the world.
