ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Ian Bremmer, the geopolitical expert and author, will address Global Security Exchange (GSX) attendees on Sept. 9 to officially kick off the paid conference program.
Bremmer’s discussion, 8:30-10 a.m., will center around navigating the current geopolitical landscape as it pertains to security risks and hotspots, with insights into global trends, politics and economics around the world — both in emerging markets and on the political front lines.
“Dr. Bremmer is an acknowledged expert in foreign affairs and risk assessment who can speak directly to many of today’s pressing international security issues,” states Christina Duffey, CPP, president, ASIS Int’l. “We welcome his global perspective and look forward to his exciting presentation as it will undoubtedly be timely and educational for all GSX 2019 conference attendees.”

Bremmer is a prolific thought leader and author, regularly expressing his views on political issues in public speeches, television appearances, and top publications, including Time magazine, where he is the foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large.
He holds a PhD in political science from Stanford University and is the founder and president of Eurasia Group, a political risk research and consulting firm, and the founder of GZERO Media, a Eurasia Group company that provides coverage of global affairs.
Bremmer is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets — he created Wall Street’s first global political risk index (GPRI) — and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets — “those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics for market outcomes” — has become an industry standard.
“G-Zero,” his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.
In 2007, Bremmer was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, where he is the founding chairman of the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk. He is the Harold J. Newman Distinguished Fellow in Geopolitics at the Asia Society Policy Institute and serves on the President’s Council of the Near East Foundation, the Leadership Council for Concordia, and the Board of Trustees of Intelligence Squared.
Bremmer has published 10 books including the national bestsellers “Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World,” “The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?” and “Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World.”
GSX 2019 will be held Sept. 8-12 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. For more information, go here.
