The future of conflict prevention

Looking ahead to the horizon of 2030, this Chaillot Paper analyses the need for a conflict prevention approach in the face of three megatrends that will have far-reaching global repercussions.

The three trends - climate change, digitalisation and the fragmentation of authority - will not only have manifold environmental, social and political implications, but may also have considerable impact on peace and conflict dynamics.

The volume explores how each megatrend is likely to influence conflict escalatory processes in the coming decade. It also examines how investments in conflict prevention mechanisms can strengthen societal resilience and help the international community to better manage a hotter, increasingly digitalised and decentralised world.
