The Age of Instability

Instability and related uncertainty are a pervasive phenomenon affecting all areas of our societies, from financial markets to food production, from energy sources to the development of cities, from crime and war to health and virus control, from increasing unemployment to migration flows. Instability is above all a political phenomenon, related to inadequate world governance and to the difficulty of providing global public goods. Instability is related to economic and cultural divides, to excessive differences in income distribution, to political and economic wars over resource control. Political, economic and social instability is further enhanced by climate change, a phenomenon that can increasingly be perceived and that is heightening and broadening many of the existing challenges for our societies.

The objective of this cross-cutting theme is therefore twofold. On the one hand, to link up FEEM’s research on sustainability with more general economic, political and social issues. On the other hand, the objective is to create a community of thinkers, business and political leaders and young entrepreneurs who gather to discuss a long-term vision for our societies and identify challenges and opportunities provided by the uncertainties and instabilities characterizing our times.

The FEEM cross-cutting theme "The Age of Instability" will be fully developed in 2018.
