De Strateeg: Een Strategisch Nieuwjaar

December 20th 2020 - 11:37

Het jaar 2020 was er één om nooit te vergeten. De coronacrisis veranderde de wereld ongekend snel en veel ontwikkelingen zijn nog steeds aan de gang. Trends die er soms al waren, zijn aan het versnellen, geopolitieke verhoudingen zijn niet meer hetzelfde en de manier waarop we reizen, werken en onze vrije tijd besteden, is ingrijpend veranderd. Wat gaat het nieuwe jaar ons brengen?

Hoe zal China zich bijvoorbeeld gaan gedragen? Gaan we meer inzetten op defensie van ons grondgebied? Of gaan we ons militair meer focussen op de ruimte? En wordt het een vredig jaar, of zullen er juist meer conflicten ontbranden?

Dat hoor je in deze laatste aflevering van De Strateeg in 2020. Een extra lange, waarin vijf experts van het Den Haag Centrum voor Strategische Studies te gast zijn bij Paul van Liempt. Elk bespreken zij met hem één belangrijk eigen thema. Wat gebeurde er in 2020 en wat mogen we verwachten voor 2021?
