Blenheim Strategy facilitates an open and frank discussion on some of the most pressing geopolitical, geo-economic, socio-political and security issues of our times. For this purpose, Blenheim organises conferences, seminars and expert workshops, conducts studies, and delivers briefings and training. We bring together and engage only select experts of the highest calibre, who are willing and able to assess, discuss and substantially move forward policy debates.
We are in the midst of profound geopolitical transformations that historically only occur when rising powers are challenging the preeminence of the existing order giver. Instead of the 'End of History', we are witnessing the 'Return of History', with all the associated risks and challenges to international stability and peace.
The global economic and financial sytem came to the brink of collapse in 2008/9. Since then, the underlying causes of the crisis have been left unadressed and global debt has skyrocketted as a result of the ultra loose monetary policies of the world's leading central banks. With interest rates rising, this comprehensive global private, public and household sector debt bubble risks to burst. As a result, calls for a global system reset are increasing.
TECHNOLOGY & SOCIETY
Advances in robotics, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and distributed ledger technology such as Blockchain are driving the digitisation revolution, which affects all aspects of the economy and society. It also raises renewed questions for the delicate balance between technological progress, individual liberty and social stability.
In the context of the rapid digitisation of all aspects of society, and the growing geopolitical contest between rising and status quo powers, cyber attacks have emerged not only as the most important risk to our modern high-tech societies and economies, but has also become a key ingredient of modern warfare.
