About

The Red (Team) Analysis SocietyThe Red (Team) Analysis Society is both a consultancy and a think tank devoted to strategic foresight and warning (SF&W), anticipatory intelligence and risk management for national and international security or geopolitical issues. Our aim is to allow for the use of SF&W and risk management for political and geopolitical uncertainties by all actors, while developing best practice, notably grounded in science.

We fund our think tank open access publications* mainly through our consulting and training activities, which allow us remaining fully independent and non-partisan, while our clients and members can benefit from the most advanced, innovative and tested approaches.

Check also some of our public references and “behind-the-scenes” activities.

Our website and publishing platform, can be used by all readers to develop a better understanding of the world around them and of the challenges ahead, while getting acquainted with anticipatory approaches. Citizens and practitioners can learn through practical cases how to identify critical issues for the future, and, more generally, how to foresee and warn. For advanced users, the real life cases presented also aim at improving anticipation through the exploration of tools and methodologies, the development of lab-type experiments, and the discussion of challenges to anticipation.

The name The Red (Team) Analysis Society (Red (Team) Analysis or RTAS for short) is inspired by Red Team activity or Red Teaming, used initially in the U.S. Army to simulate the activity of opponents in war-gaming or strategic simulations (for more on red team and red teaming activities in general see the excellent website the Red Team Journal). By extension, Red (Team) Analysis aims at promoting a strategic foresight analysis grounded in science that struggles against our many cognitive, normative and emotional biases through various tools and methodologies, including not being limited by “politically correct” approaches. Interestingly in the Soviet Union, similar activities were called Blue or Green Team activity (courtesy of Levon Sevunts @LevonSevunts).
