About future global centres of conflict and necessary preventive measures to be taken by the state community
The fight for raw materials, the global shift of power, financial crises, climate change – the certainty that our peaceful age in post-war affluence will last for much longer is diminishing. The stability of the past decades is coming to an end. The 21st century will be marked by threats of war that today no one can yet imagine happening, such as the controversy over the Arctic regions and outer space. New technologies and genetic manipulation, new deficiencies such as protein deficiency, and the dangers associated with organised crime operating within a global framework are all part of this context. Even today we are often helpless in the face of the dangers we are already familiar with, such as Islamist terrorism and climate change.
Andreas Rinke and Christian Schwägerl have presented conclusive evidence and, reflecting on the situations as they are today, laid out specific courses of events in the future, arranged according to the most important causes of conflict – raw materials, food, technologies, migration, religion.
“Markedly innovative and informative.”
