Global Risk Forum: What Lies Ahead for the World in 2024?

February 7, 2024
Business & Policy past event

Featuring General David H. Petraeus (US Army, Ret.) and Nobel Prize Recipient Joseph E. Stiglitz

In 2023, the world has experienced slowing economic conditions, heightened geopolitical instability and mounting tensions among major global powers. Geopolitical uncertainties persist, with ongoing conflicts such as the Russia-Ukraine War, escalating competition between the U.S. and China, and the emergence of new conflicts like the Israel-Hamas War. As we move into the new year, we find ourselves in one of the most disruptive times, marked by considerable uncertainty in this complex global risk landscape. What are the top risks on the minds of global leaders as we approach 2024, and how can we best prepare for unforeseen risks? At the 2024 Global Risk Forum, distinguished speakers and expert panels identify and analyze the geopolitical, economic and business risks that will define the global landscape in 2024.
