Global Strategic Trends: Challenges and Opportunities out to 2045

Global Strategic Trends: Challenges and Opportunities out to 2045

  • 6 May 2014

The UK’s Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC) has been running the Global Strategic Trends Programme since the late 1990s. The programme seeks to understand the potential future strategic context in which to conduct defence and security planning in an increasingly complex strategic environment. Each increment of Global Strategic Trends looks out into the future in five year steps; hence current work is on the fifth iteration that looks out to 2045. The current extant version, Global Strategic Trends Four, looked out to 2040. This presentation is not intended to be a comparison between iterations. Rather it seeks to articulate plausible futures, highlighting those strategic and global trends assessed as having the most significance for defence and security policy—and decision-makers. It will provide a measure of context for further national and strategic level considerations in a global environment that is interconnected, complex, often in transition, and subject to ambiguity or change.
