  • In "Perspectives", the opening section of RAMSES 2021, Thierry de Montbrial, founder and Executive Chairman of Ifri, provides an analysis of the state of global affairs.
  • Three main questions are treated in the second section, "Trois enjeux pour 2021":

                  - Global Health/Climate: COVID-19, what now?: The coronavirus is emblematic of globalization: no one controls or masters its spread. Who is governing? There is no specific governance for such global matters as health, environment, information…

                  - Europe: redo or undo: As usual, reviews of the European Union are mixed: pale but decisive, unavoidable. Should it be redone or undone? Should Europe think of itself as a political project or subsist as a mere safety net: these are options facing the Conference on the Future of Europe.

                  - Middle East: 10 years after the false spring: The post-spring decade and the coronavirus crisis go side by side: reinforcement of control over civil societies, growing weight of authoritarian regimes, meltdown of the global economy, and an important division of societies in rebellion.

  • The third section, Le Monde en questions, offers a thorough study of recent conflicts, strategies, and important international negotiations.
     
  • The final section, Les Repères, presents a mix of statistics, timelines and original maps.

 

RAMSES 2021 also includes 8 videos featuring Ifri researchers providing concise analysis of the most critical issues in international affairs.
