Russian futures 2030 : the shape of things to come by Sinikukka Saari( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Chaillot Paper seeks to provide readers with ambitious foresight analysis and insights on how to be prepared for unexpected twists and turns in Russia's future trajectory. This Chaillot Paper looks at Russia on the horizon of 2030. It offers analytical insights into the twists and turns that may characterise the country's path in the upcoming decade, and explores how a num-ber of critical uncertainties may have a slignifi-cant impact on Russia's future trajectory. These key uncertainties work as 'catalysts' that may speed up the pace and alter the direction of change in Russia
What if...not? : The cost of inaction by Florence Gaub( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foresight is an action-oriented endeavour: only rarely does it look at events not taking place, actions not taken, or the consequences of doing nothing. But inaction can have far-reaching repercussions. Policymaking is not just about devising and implementing policies, but also about decisions: those crossroads where action and inaction may lead to divergent outcomes.The 12 scenarios presented in this Chaillot Paper draw attention to the cost of inaction in a variety of areas, ranging from Russia to Africa, from cyberspace to environmental matters. They highlight the (geo)political, economic and strategic implications of not taking action at a critical juncture. Together, they apply the precautionary principle to foreign and security policy, whereby calculating the different consequences of action and inaction in the future would help policymakers take crucial decisions ahead of time
Connecting the dots : challenges to EU connectivity in Central Asia( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite ‘connectivity’ having become a new global buzzword, an exact definition of the term remains elusive. If various EU descriptions are combined, connectivity comprises of transport, digital, energy and human networks, as well as rules, standards and institutions which govern the flows of interaction. Moreover, the EU’s September 2018 connectivity strategy defines the European interpretation of connectivity as sustainable, comprehensive and rules-based. This European vision of connectivity also runs through the EU’s new Central Asia strategy, which was adopted on 15 May 2019. Compared with the previous Central Asia strategy from 2007, the new strategy places increased emphasis on encouraging economic development (‘prosperity’), comprehensive security (‘resilience’) and intra-regional cooperation between the Central Asian states: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. In order for prosperity and resilience to be achieved, significant regional connectivity challenges – which largely stem from the legacy of the region’s Soviet past (including its dramatic rupture and the informal shadow networks that quickly took root) – need to be overcome. Furthermore, the EU’s strategy faces competing visions of connectivity from both China and Russia. This Brief looks into connectivity-related challenges and how they relate to the EU’s new Central Asia strategy and its vision of connectivity. This means examining the legacy of Soviet connectivity, the significance of regional informal networks, as well as the impact of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and Russia’s Great Eurasian Partnership

The eastern partnership a decade on : looking back, thinking ahead( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years after the launch of the Eastern Partnership (EaP), this Chaillot Paper looks back on its evolution, unveils shifting attitudes towards the EaP programme and provides analyses of both the successes and failures experienced in the six partner states. Furthermore, it examines how the present and future trajectories of these states are being influenced and shaped by powerful regional and global megatrends. These countries are actively shaping their own futures and also developing in different, distinctive directions. Finally, the paper suggests ways in which the EaP could be adapted to fend off regional challenges and take advantage of rising opportunities in the coming decade

Conflicts to come 15 scenarios for 2030 by Florence Gaub( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

“History is littered with mistaken predictions about the future of warfare”: taking this observation as its premise, this Chaillot Paper takes a novel approach to exploring how future conflicts might unfold. In contrast to traditional schools of conflict anticipation, which rely on science, history and deduction, it combines imagination with an analysis of past and present trends to paint a compelling picture of conflicts to come. This approach, which incorporates elements and tools drawn from science fiction and futuristic art and literature, also takes account of hitherto unknown factors and drivers of conflict – new technological developments, environmental changes, or ideologies yet to be born.The volume presents 15 fictionalised scenarios that imagine how future conflicts might occur. These scenarios contribute to, and at times challenge, the existing body of assumptions concerning the genesis of conflict, its likelihood and how it might play out. Reflecting the creative and collaborative spirit that underlies this publication, the authors who devised these scenarios embarked on a truly innovative project taking them out of their comfort zone and into the realm of foresight
