The meeting, the 8th in our annual ‘Futures’ series, convened over 60 participants from 20 countries to discuss the future of global conflict, drawing on the expertise of policy professionals, futurists, academics, private sector and subject experts from a variety of perspectives and backgrounds.
It examined the evolving scale, range and definition of conflict; considered what types of conflicts will be fought in the future and where; and how should strategy and doctrine evolve to meet these challenges. Themes included: the role of international alliances, diplomacy and development in both conflict prevention and resolution; who will be the main actors and what are the drivers and threats?
