This is especially true in the growing volatility of an uncertain era characterized by a fragmented liberal international order and increasingly interconnected economies. As a strategic political consultancy, Agora Strategy provides companies, governments, and international organizations with global business intelligence, risk analyses, geopolitical advisory, and corporate diplomacy.

The Agora Strategy Institute serves as our internal think tank unit, supporting our activities with targeted analyses. The Institute provides political risk and opportunity assessments for business and investment decisions worldwide. Agora Strategy draws on a unique global network of high-ranking decision-makers and diplomatic, military, and security policy experts, as well as strong political and economic expertise in the target markets.
