COVID-19, climate change, AI and geopolitical tensions are but manifestations of a long list of complex global risks the world faces. The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks 2020 report urges that “stakeholders must find ways to act quickly and with purpose within an unsettled global landscape”. This session brings together researchers from the Universities of Cambridge and Tokyo to present ongoing projects on global risks and the ensuing implications for policy.
