From our Think-Tank
Horizon scanning board with signals and impact analysis – Research articles on global issues and methodology to foresee and warn – Scans


The Horizon Scanning Board

Our Horizon Scanning Board (open access) publishes a selection of the most important signals on global issues we identify daily, with a summary of impacts and brief analysis of the signal.

In-Depth Research Articles

Our research articles address two types of topics:

  • Thematic and geographical geopolitical and political risks and uncertainties.
  • Methodological aspects of anticipation, strategic foresight and warning and risk management, or early warning.

The largest part of our research articles are now premium content for members-only. Read more about becoming a member
We nonetheless strive to still provide some of our most fundamental articles and research as open access publications.*

Thematic and Geographical Issues

Our research articles focus on a large range of issues shaping our political and geopolitical future.

As times goes by and the unfolding future becomes the present then the past, our articles progressively build an analytical trove which helps understand the dynamics at work out of which the future emerges. They can be included in the first step of the anticipation analytical methodology we recommend, the literature review or state of the art, upon which the anticipation model is built.

How to Foresee and Warn

Our methodological articles are aimed at practitioners, as well as students, who want to understand better how anticipation is done, from scenario building to indicators and delivery to decision-makers starting with the basics, including understanding better the multiple names given to anticipation.

A specific series is focused on an anticipation of political and geopolitical risks and uncertainties useful to the corporate sector.

All the articles in this section address the various challenges which can be found at each step of the strategic foresight and warning process for political and geopolitical risks and uncertainties: analyse, scan and monitor, evaluate, and deliver.

Raw Monitoring and Scanning

Our raw Monitoring and Scanning (open access) presents regularly the weak and less weak signals we collect on various issues.

Scanning and monitoring: All Issues

Our scanning and monitoring is grounded in years of practice and in-depth knowledge and experience of research for political and geopolitical issues. The Red (Team) Analysis Weekly scans the horizon every week for weak – and less weak – signals regarding all political and geopolitical risks and uncertainties, as well as national and global changes and instability, using crowdsourcing. The Sigils are a series of daily, raw (non edited) scans. Each focuses on a specific issue and are provided through the platform Paper.Li.
