calendarclock - (GMT)

In a briefing session organised by RUSI and the School of International Futures, Professor Sheila Ronis will discuss the impact that foresight analysis and horizon scanning have had on US government policy, based on her Vision Working Group’s project on National Security Reform.

Foresight analysis and horizon scanning are increasingly recognised as essential methodologies for strategic planning and decision-making. The Chilcott Report underscored their importance, and USIP’s Fragility Study Group recently emphasised their value in a report requested by the US National Security Council.
