For Cutting-Edge Foresight analysis  shaping global affairs

 

BEPA, bureau des conseillers de politique européenne -

Le BEPA est l'héritier de la Cellule de prospective créée à la Commission européenne en 1989. À l'époque, il s'agissait d'un «petit groupe de réflexion» composé de représentants de l'Union européenne placés sous l'autorité directe de Jacques Delors, alors Président de la Commission.
L'équipe Outreach du BEPA est l'interface entre le Bureau et les acteurs externes spécialisés dans les affaires européennes et les études relatives aux conséquences de la mondialisation. L'équipe Analyse regroupe des conseillers chargés d'élaborer des notes d'analyse sur les politiques menées par la Commission européenne et de fournir, en temps opportun, des conseils généraux ou spécifiques sur les questions liées à l'élaboration des politiques de l'UE, à la demande du Président et de son cabinet.

Strategic analysis, policy advice and outreach

The European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC) reports directly to the President and operates under his authority. It is composed of a professional staff of advisers, policy analysts and support staff with appropriate experience and track record, in order to provide professional and targeted policy advice to the President and the College.

EPSC provides strategic analysis and policy advice for the President on matters related to the policy priorities (as defined by the President in his political guidelines presented to the European parliament on July 15 2014), and outreach to decision-makers, think tanks and civil society at large.

The EPSC provides support to the President also on concrete initiatives, as well as policy advice of more long-term nature

CEWS : Conflict Early Warning Systems

Peacemakers share a vision of a less violent world and a faith in the existence of real possibilities for achieving it: pathways to peace that are, or might be, less violent than those all too visible in the international relations of the 20th Century. If both faith and the intuition of experienced peacemakers tell us that this is possible, the relevant practical and intellectual issue is: how may such a less violent world be concretely achieved? Moreover, can scholars, teachers and administrators develop better ways to learn from, remember, transmit, convincingly publicize, generalize and improve upon the practical experiences of those responsible for such successes, as well as of those less successful, or less nobly minded?

This website and the associated book (Hayward R. Alker, Ted Robert Gurr and Kumar Rupesinghe (eds.) (2001), Journeys through Conflict: Narratives and Lessons, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Lanham, MD.) report on nearly a decade of international social scientific effort with the above needs in mind. They are the principal products of the Conflict Early Warning Systems (CEWS) research project of the International Social Science Council. The project involved an interdisciplinary team of social scientists, peace researchers and conflict prevention specialists from different regions of the world focussed on successes and failures in preventing violent inter-group conflicts. Specifically, CEWS sought to enhance the capacities of scholars and practitioners in governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental institutions to use productively past scholarship encoded in their information systems and bureaucratic memories.

The CEWS project was administered through the Center for International Studies and the Department of International Relations at the University of Southern California, from 1995 through 1999. The work was funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and used some results of the "Paris-in-LA" project at the Annenberg Center for Communication at USC

 

Ce site regroupe plusieurs banques de données sur les Etats faibles et sur l’alerte précoce. Il développe les approches théoriques d’un ouvrage cosigné par Ted Gurr et Kumar Rupesinghe, dans le cadre d’un projet de recherche mené par l’International Social Science Council.

Le CEWS dépend du Center for International Studies et du Department of International Relations de l’University of Southern California.

CIFP : Country Indicators for Foreign Policy

Conflict Risk Assessment

CIFP has its origins in a prototype geopolitical database developed by the Canadian Department of National Defence in 1991. The prototype project called GEOPOL covered a wide range of political, economic, social, military, and environmental indicators through the medium of a rating system. In 1997, under the guidance of Andre Ouellete, John Patterson , Tony Kellett and Paul Sutherland, the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade decided to adopt some elements of GEOPOL to meet the needs of policy makers, the academic community and the private sector.

 

Les CIFP constituent une méthode d'analyse politiste des Etats, en terme d'alerte précoce des conflits ou de désintégration des Etats. Il offre également des données géopolitiques développées par le département canadien de la défense nationale depuis 1991.
Thèmes principaux : analyse des risques, de menaces, analyse des Etats, indicateurs de violence
Région concernée : Monde
Objectif : Mettre en place des indicateurs de paix et / ou de violence afin de prévenir les conflits
Spécificité : Mise en ligne de documents, méthodologies d’analyse des conflits

Globe Expert

Globe Expert  (GE), premier thint tank français fondée sur un outil d'intelligence artificielle :

"Globe Expert is a solution to infobesity, revealing the reality and the different standpoints. For researchers, Globe Expert is an Artificial Intelligence system based on the quantum approach of the information.solution to infobesity

When an artificial intelligence does mind mapping, it stores thousands and thousands of documents.  It keeps their very substance. The maps allow the users to grasp what is really at the heart of the issues, instead of being overwhelmed by an uninformative flood.Revealing the Reality

When an artificial intelligence unravels the threads of entanglement, it discerns the patterns of complexity. From a ball of information, it makes a superposition of plain states and trends. Instead of a blurred image, the users have an accurate map of the reality.Revealing the Standpoints

When an artificial intelligence considers the reality from different standpoints, it acts as an observer. It induces a collapse of the reality to consider the facts from a specific standpoint. Instead of hearing only one sound, the users get the different tunes. With Globe Expert, the researchers think in multiple dimensions, operate in superposed worlds, simulate collapses, imagine, model and simulate behaviors, comprehend how complexity is structured and what it reveals".
