The Red (Team) Analysis Society helps you embracing uncertainty
yet avoiding surprise
We live today in a highly volatile world. Uncertainties for tomorrow abound. The world we knew is already gone. Yet, the future emerges only slowly. It is the theatre of tensions. Changes appear to be very quick, yet sometimes they surprise us with a pace that is not so fast. How can we make sense of this emerging world? How can we take decisions for the future? How can we mitigate the risks we face?
With us you find answers to these questions.

As time goes by, the unfolding future becomes the present then the past.
Articles and reports progressively build an analytical trove to make sense of the world, to understand the dynamics at work out of which the future emerges.
Articles and reports are essential elements for the state of the art/literature review of the methodology of strategic foresight and warning and risk management.
How to Foresee and Warn – Methodology
The methodological aspects of strategic foresight and warning, risk management, or horizon scanning are addressed in a large collection of in-depth articles.
The articles of this section are aimed at practitioners, as well as students, who want to understand better how anticipation is done, from scanning the horizon to scenario-building through indicators and delivery to decision-makers.
All the articles address the various challenges that we can face at each step of the strategic foresight and warning process for political and geopolitical risks and uncertainties: analyse, scan and monitor, evaluate, and deliver.
The largest part of our research articles are now premium content. Read more about becoming a member…
We nonetheless strive to still provide some of our most fundamental articles and research as open access publications.* Give it a try and start reading some or all our open access (free) articles.
Monitoring and Scanning (open access – without analysis)
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.
