The geopolitical evolution represents a permanent process. It is mostly influenced
by the geopolitical condition, in which the geopolitical relations and
processes are evolving. The understanding of geopolitical evolution is impossible
without the critical review and even rejection of the dominant geopolitical
visions. There are various theoretical perspectives that reject the dominant
geopolitical visions and discourses as well as geopolitical practices of the
political elites. Those theoretical perspectives are known as: critical geopolitics,
anti-geopolitics, subaltern geopolitics, feminist geopolitics, radical geopolitics.
There are also various comprehensions of relationship between these
theoretical perspectives, although it is clear that each of them is overlapped
with others, and all of them are overlapped with critical geopolitics, differing
in the focus of study and the identification of new moments, and at the
same time being similar by their deflection from the dominant geopolitical
vision and practices, to which they react in different ways: by criticizing, by
putting resistance or offering alternatives. In this paper, the research focus is
mostly on anti-geopolitics, a radical geopolitical vision that puts into question
the relations of exploitation and dominance. Anti-geopolitics also represents a
theoretical perspective that poses the most serious challenge to the dominant
ways of representing the World. The proponents of anti-geopolitics focus their
research on the anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggles, as well as on the
social movements and networks that offer a resistance to globalization and
geo-economic logic that are advocated and practiced by the political-economic
elites of states and multinational corporations and intergovernmental institutions,
especially the financial ones. The paper also brings a brief review of
the key aspects of other theoretical perspectives that represent a more or less
radical deflection from the dominant geopolitical visions.
