According to the London School of Economics website the Mackinder Centre for Long Wave Events is:

an interdisciplinary research centre. It has been established to promote new approaches to and improved methods for research on that class of geopolitical issues - long wave events - which pose some of the greatest challenges to the 21st century. These include socio-physical phenomena, such as the HIV/AIDS endemic or global climate change, and socio-cultural phenomena such as technological "lock-in" or cultural encapsulation in the face of modernity - of which unconditional terrorism is a product.
