In international relations, the Covid crisis is seen either as a gamechanger or as an accelerator of trends. Putting it in a time perspective can help us think the day after. While the Covid19 crisis is far from over, this study requested by the AFET Committee looks at the impact on geopolitics.

It assesses the geopolitical trends, lays out the space for action and change created by the disruption, and explores the trends and uncertainties in three possible scenarios for the world and the EU in 2025.
