Perspectives for the next year from the Antall József Knowledge Centre Research Team

This year, New Years’ Eve will not only see a regular new year coming but the closing of a whole decade. The aggregate analysis of the AJRC research group points toward specific likely conclusions about the world which suggest 2020 to be a concluding year of the problems of the 2010s. Many of those issues that characterised international relations for quite some time have now reached a point of rest—though not resulted in a definitive outcome.

Global Demographic Outlook 2020 – Demographic Perspectives from the Antall József Knowledge Centre Research Team

Global population witnessed an unprecedented growth in recent decades. From reaching 4 billion in 1974, 6 billion in 1999 and 7.8 billion people this year, the world’s population is set to reach the 8-billion mark in the very near future. This rapid growth will affect less developed nations the most; however, in strong contrast, economically advanced countries across the globe will witness a sharp drop in population, due to a set of mutually-aligned trends. Fertility rates under the 2.0-2.1 threshold required for a stable reproduction rate, combined with an increasing life expectancy, mean that these states will not only have fewer citizens, but will also have to find a solution for the increasing pressure on their current pension system, as a declining number of workers will have to support a growing number of pensioners.

Nemzeti álláspontok Európa jövőjéről a poszt-COVID érában

A gazdasági válság hátterében a 2008-as világgazdasági változások, a görög szuverén adósság válság, az európai bankunió régóta halogatott reformja és a fiskális politika integrációjának hiánya áll. A migrációs válság oka főként a korábban nem tapasztalt mértékű menekültáradat, amelynek hátterében a küldő országok romló gazdasági (Koszovó, Albánia, Banglades, Pakisztán) és biztonsági (Szíria, Irak, Afganisztán) helyzete áll. A különböző történelmi és kulturális tapasztalatokkal bíró tagállamok társadalmai (a volt gyarmat­tartók és a poszt-kommunista félperiféria) eltérő módon reagáltak a kihívásra, ami aláásta az európai szolidaritást, felerősítve a korábban is létező feszültségeket.
