We have compiled a list of YouTube channels that have videos relating to geopolitics and global trends. Some of the channels are not exclusively about geopolitics, but are in the list as they have some great videos about key geopolitical trends. For this reason, our list is not based on a rank of the most subscribers, but rather based on the quality of the videos, relevancy of our times and substance in research based on how neutral they are. This list by no means is extensive, but rather, more like a useful list for people who like topics like KJ Vids. We have put ourselves on the top of the list for obvious reasons 🙂 but you can checkout the rest of the channels below.

Caspian Report is one of the first YouTube channels that produced videos on a host of geopolitical issues around the world.

It’s most popular video is called “Pre-Islamic History of the Middle East” which was produced in 2012 and has achieved over 2.6 million video views.

Geopolitical Futures is a publication dedicated to predicting the future course of the international system. In doing so, Geopolitical Futures challenges two assumptions. First, that political leaders decide what they will do and individual actions can’t be predicted. Second, that there is no methodology for predicting non-quantitative events. The founder of Geopolitical Futures, George Friedman, who also founded the geopolitical intelligence firm Stratfor, has built a career on successful geopolitical forecasts. Some of the events predicted in his books include a crisis in the EU, the economic decline of China, the re-emergence of Russia, a confrontation over Ukraine, a U.S.-Iranian entente and increasing tensions with Israel.
