Risk and Foresight Group
The Risk and Foresight Group at CSIS provides leaders in government and business with insights into the forces of change reshaping the global environment, from shifting demographics to emerging technologies.
The Risk and Foresight Group is organized around two core research initiatives.
- Strategic Insights is a weekly update on a topic of pressing geopolitical risk at the intersection of government and business interests.
- Seven Revolutions identifies the most important macrotrends shaping our world to 2050 through an ongoing stream of research and a live presentation.
The Risk and Foresight Group was chartered to focus CSIS’s cross-cutting analysis in near-term geopolitical risk, and mid- to long-term futures (2030 to 2050 and beyond). It is also a center of experimentation for innovative use of foresight methodologies such as scenario planning, data analysis, modeling, simulation, and gaming to help leaders and organizations grapple with an era of continuous change.
