GEOPOLITICS OF HEALTH– SUBDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH OF MEDICAL SCIENCE AND HEALTH SYSTEMS MANIPULATIONS IN THE CONTEXT OF GEOPOLITICS AS A SYNTHTETIC SCIENCE
Keywords:Covid-19, geopolitics of public discourse, global media, applied geopolitics, new reality
The authors of this paper begin by defining geopolitics as a synthetic science, as well as applied geopolitics, constituted in the theoretical level of geopolitics, in an attempt to point to the existing subdisciplines that are already constituted and which categorical-conceptual and methodological apparatus is used for analysis of special, isolated phenomena, such as identity, cyberspace, emotions, etc. Starting from the fact that geopolitics is a complex synthetic science that develops its theoretical steps forward towards constitution of new disciplinary and subdisciplinary dimensions, the authors strive towards constituting a new, original subdiscipline defined as “geopolitics of health”. We are speaking of a discipline of applied geopolitics (applicative geopolitics) that deals with research of the impact of socio-geographical, economic and political factors on endangering health as a public good in the context of geopolitics as synthetic science. Thus, geopolitics of health is a pioneer subdiscipline of geopolitics that researches, analyses and synthetizes the acquired results in order to distinguish possible abuse of medical science and health system by corruptive individuals, interest groups, health authorities, pharmaceutical industries, legal regulations and official state and international organizations’ policies, which all, in some way, deal with the issue of human health. Using the method of analysis and synthesis, the method of deduction and the geopolitical method, we strive to lay the foundation for further research advances in the context of geopolitics as a synthetic science.
