Abstract:

Today’s international environment is characterized by a number of “mega-trends”, many of which we are already familiar with: the onward march of globalization; the rapid proliferation of systemic and existential security challenges; the unflagging information and communications revolution; the emergence of disruptive technologies and ideas; and the general acceleration of life. Other trends are more subtle, but their impact is no less profound: the marketization of states and societies; the remaking of hierarchies; the rapid democratization and uptake of knowledge; the shrinking of organizational perspectives and time horizons; and the growing disconnect between theory and reality that largely prevents single-discipline theoreticians from understanding and properly interpreting these shifts. IR specialists have a proven track record at not being particularly good forecasters. Philip Tetlock’s long-term study of political science specialists has shown that specialists are not significantly better than non-specialists at predicting the future. Taken as whole, these trends have alerted us to our inability to understand the complexity of forces at work and fashion an effective strategic response. They have also made us acutely aware of the failings and limitations of our educational systems. Thus, these issues need to be addressed as a matter of priority. The solution lies first and foremost in our educational system.
