Foreign Chronicles


What is this platform?

This platform is all about GEOPOLITICS..

According to the Cambridge dictionary, geopolitics is the study of the way a country's size, position, etc. influence its power and its relationships with other countries. Whether we address it globally or locally, through specific protagonists or strategies, this is the heart of what we share on this platform.

But geopolitics addressed CHEERFULLY..

Geopolitics is neither a neutral nor an innocuous subject. Studying it can quite demanding sometimes. Because it is complicated, but mainly because it somehow highlights particularly tense parts of the world. This is why I try to address those topics with rythm and cheerfulness. people from ALL OVER THE WORLD !

Well, for now I am doing everything by myself..

Video scenarios, video editing, information retrieval, interviews, website design, blog posts, communication, forum moderation, community management, graphic charter creation, patreon page management etc. I have learnt all from scratch starting this Foreign Chronicles' project the 7th of october 2015. There are so many more things to do that I am now looking for a team !

+ Subscribers

..unless I get some help here and there !

I am thinking especially about Sameh Saadi, who translated the whole video about the Islamic State in Arabic, about Shirvan Neftchi who, helped me by shouting my channel out on Caspian Report, about David, Jean-Côme, Zoé who assisted me in Iraq. And about the patreons supporting me, especially the main ones: John Bradshaw and Rassad Alan.


But I am now looking for one of you !

I am looking for someone exceptionnal who would become a member of the Foreign Chronicles' team :) I need someone particularly resourceful, able to assist me on some of the sides of the project: video scenarios, video editing, information retrieval, blog posts, communication, forum moderation, community management, subtitling etc. If you are very motivated, send me a mail with a few sentences to help me know you ! And I can ensure you that the adventure is going to be fantastic.
