The Munich Security Conference's 2024 security report predicts a downward trend in world politics, with increased geopolitical tensions and economic uncertainty. Migration through war and climate change is now seen as a more significant threat than Russia's aggression. The report also highlights the risk perception of a military conflict in the Indo-Pacific between China and Taiwan.
The world in 2024 will be characterized by a "downward trend in world politics, marked by an increase in geopolitical tensions and economic uncertainty."
The survey conducted by the Munich Security Conference shows a shift in priorities for the surveyed individuals. Migration through war and climate change is now considered a greater threat than an aggressive Russia. This could be attributed to the ongoing war in Ukraine, which those surveyed may have become accustomed to.
But in the current survey, "migration through war and climate change" is now seen as even more important than the prospect of an aggressive Russia.
