Stratfor Methodology

Text Size

Stratfor's proprietary methodology is our framework to predict the shifts of geopolitical power that shape our world and interpret the significance of today's global events. It combines an understanding of geopolitics, the tools of intelligence analysis and rigorous internal debate that is refined into a unified Stratfor perspective. Stratfor Vice President of Strategic Analysis Rodger Baker explains how our analysts start with a flood of open-source information, filter out the propaganda, unearth the emerging paradigms, challenge assumptions and reconcile conflicting truths to produce actionable geopolitical analysis and forecasts.
