Global Forecast 2017

  • 03 Jan 2017 11:42

The Intelligence & Advisory Services team at G4S Risk Consulting presents the Global Forecast 2017, our assessment of the key global security trends for the year.


Decision-makers navigated a challenging 2016:

The evolving nature of terrorism, which continues to threaten countries outside insurgent strongholds, caused concerns that persist for security services and for managers with duty of care for their employees.

Political institutions were challenged and on occasion shaken in 2016 as governments around the world struggled to meet the economic and political demands of citizens. Key political uncertainties – notably the policy trajectory of a Trump administration and the scope of the UK’s exit from and destabilisation of the EU – look set to dominate 2017.
