For nearly two decades, National Intelligence Council's Global Trends Report has been shaping strategic conversations within and beyond the US Government. Since the first Global Trends was released in 1997, the audience for each report has expanded, generating more interest and reaching a broader audience that the one that preceded it.
A new Global Trends report is published every four years following the U.S. presidential election.
We are living in paradox - industrial and information age achievements are shaping a world both more dangerous and richer with opportunity. Human choices will determine whether promise or peril prevails.
Global Trends is the Intelligence Community’s major assessment of the forces - and choices - shaping the world over the next two decades.
National Intelligence Council’s latest edition of the report, Global Trends “Paradox of Progress” was released Jan 9, 2017, exploring trends and scenarios over the next 20 years. Mobile users are currently experiencing issues, view PDF version here.
The release of each Global Trends report is not an end, but an invitation, to discuss, debate and inquire further about how the future could unfold. The Global Trends series pushes us to reexamine key assumptions, expectations, and uncertainties about the future.
Unique amongst intelligence products of this depth and stature, the NIC quadrennial Global Trends report is completely unclassified.
