Global Trends to 2035: Geo-politics and International Power


Jan 2018

What economic, societal and political global factors will shape the world up to 2035? This publication responds by looks at eight plausible candidates, including the world’s aging population; weakening enthusiasm for globalization; continued industrial and technological revolution; climate change and resource competition; shifting power relations; new areas of state competition; information age politics; and ecological threats. The text also outlines four possible scenarios on the future of European and global stability as well as what policy options the EU could consider to help it navigate the next two decades.
