War in Ukraine: A Chronicle of a never-ending era

For our traditional dive into the archives in August, we have logically chosen the major theme of this year 2022: the entry of Russian forces in Ukraine. The interest of this exercise is primordial to our work of anticipation, and it makes more sense on such a burning subject. As we mentioned in our March […]

Visions and key dates in tomorrow’s space agenda

Between the desire for supremacy and the wish to use space as a catalyst for a new economy, the vision that nations have of their place in space is remarkably diverse.

Three words sum up […]

End-2022 – The signing of the Armenian-Azerbaijani peace agreement ushers in a new future for the South Caucasus

2023 – 2025: Blackout risks. Responding to the imperative of prosilience

Denial, illusion of security, feeling of powerlessness and unpreparedness seem to prevail in terms of preparing the population for the risk of a blackout on a European scale. Blackout is a frightening term, still somewhat taboo in certain chancelleries, whereas the American, Austrian and Swiss governments – among others[1] – have been mobilising their populations […]

Post-Midterms USA 2022-2024: The Emperor’s New Clothes

Congress is an important part of a well-oiled political system, and many of its features (like the support for America’s endless wars) are bi-partisan or uniparty. But the DC system has, for a long time, been in an existential crisis which has led America to experience a populist alternative for four years with the election […]

New world monetary order: clash of blocs and multiplication of tools in sight

All the conditions are in place for the shift towards a new world monetary order.
