Abstract:

This report is about warfare and how it might change through 2020. It is also about the strategic context in which warfare may change and how in turn warfare might change that strategic context. By warfare, we mean people killing people for presumably political purposes i.e., beyond family feuds or criminal activities that result in killing. We look at it out through 2020 in three dimensions where killing may be taking place, how the killing may be done with what instruments, tactics, and strategies, and how killing may be organized and prepared for from the level of terrorists and insurgents up to the state level.
