Engelsberg Applied History Programme
Launched in 2018, The Engelsberg Programme for Applied History, Grand Strategy and Geopolitics (EAHP) was originally a partnership between the Centre for Grand Strategy at the War Studies Department at King’s College London and the Centre for Geopolitics at Cambridge University in collaboration with the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit. It is today an integral part of AJI’s efforts in the field of Applied History and historically informed statecraft.
As part of its mission to foster dialogue on the most pressing global challenges, AJI is home to the Europa Programme which convenes small groups of leading policymakers, historians, and analysts of international relations from around the world for off-the-record roundtable meetings in the United Kingdom. In these private gatherings, participants freely exchange ideas, pose hard questions, discuss solutions, and offer candid thoughts on both the issues of the day and the broader sweep of historical events.
AJI is a four-university, transatlantic consortium, which in collaboration with the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation for Public Benefit, will recruit, train, and mentor the next generation of historically-minded scholars and practitioners in statecraft, diplomacy, and strategy.

Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs

Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies seeks to generate and apply rigorous historical thinking to the most vexing global challenges. The center is home to distinguished scholars of history and practitioners in foreign policy and international security and aims to bring together leading thinkers and policymakers.
Centre for Geopolitics
The Centre for Geopolitics at the University of Cambridge applies historical analysis, area studies, political science and the experience of practitioners to major problems of conflict and world order: past, present and future. It offers a deeper understanding of where the world’s most pressing geopolitical challenges have come from, how they may develop and how they might be resolved.
Center for Statecraft and Strategic Communication
The Center for Statecraft and Strategic Communication at the Stockholm School of Economics is dedicated to fostering a historically informed understanding of the role of strategic communication – the purposeful use of information by states and other political actors to achieve their strategic objectives – in statecraft.
