GEAB 122

The monthly bulletin of LEAP (European Laboratory of Political Anticipation) - 15 Feb 2018

Calendar of future events: February-May 2018

The future is full of factual data on which must be based anticipations that shed light on our decisions. That’s why, once a quarter, our team shares with GEAB readers this ‘raw’ data of its work in the form of an annnotated calendar for the next three months; a calendar which everyone can adapt to their own concerns; a simple and original illuminating tool.

February 9-25 – PyeongChang, South Korea: The Winter Olympic Games  

As we already mentioned in the ‘up and down trends’ of last month, the only interesting thing to anticipate around these Winter Olympic Games is the rapprochement between North and South Korea. Contrary to what some in the media are trying to make us believe, South Korea has invited North Korea to take part in these Games. It has also chosen a strategic location in the middle of the whole Korean Peninsula and in a city with a name very similar to that of the North Korean capital (PyongYang/PyongChang). Kim Jong-Un’s sister was even invited to open the Games. The current South Korean government intends to make the world aware of its appeasement with the northern part of the peninsula. This looks like a situation that may force the United States to reconsider its strategy. Ready to talk to North Korea?[1]

February 15-16 – Sofia, Bulgaria: EU/Informal Meeting of Foreign Affairs Ministers (Gymnich format)  

On the agenda are Syria, North Korea and the Balkans. The Foreign Affairs Ministers of the five candidate countries are invited to join the meeting on the second day.
