The Kampala Geopolitics Conference is an academic public event discussing current geopolitical trends and hot topics. Initiated in 2018 by the Embassy of France to Uganda, the concept of the Geopolitics Conference is based on the initiative of IRIS (Institut de Relations Internationales et Stratégiques) which organises in Nantes, France, on a yearly basis a global conference to debate major contemporary international relations issues.

After four successful years, the conference has become a regional flagship bearer for Geopolitical debates: by complimenting global conversations with regional and African perspectives, the conference sets the course for balanced discourse and places sustainable development, global peace and international cooperation in the limelight.
