Shocks and South Korea

Key questions being addressed:

How to succeed in the world of surprises?
What are the long-term national resilience requirements that emerge from the increasing uncertainties in the global physical and social environments?
What kinds of concrete decisions decision makers should make now?

Our collaboration partners in this project is Center for Strategic Foresight of the Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI), Seoul and International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna.

The project will stress test the Korean economy and society with seven very different shocks. Such as “What happens if Samsung leaves the country?” or “What happens if internet is suddenly collapsing for unknown period?”

The project will be completed by end of August 2012.
