Today, the future is equally diverse and non-existent. In the last two decades, in addition to the countries of the ‘West’, the major emerging economies, including India, China, Russia, Brazil, South Africa, and regional powers have been shaping the economic, political and cultural interdependencies of a more complex, dynamic, accelerated world. Social inequalities are further exacerbated by the socially unequal distribution of risks emanating from climate change, (wo)man-made technologies, the financial system or global terrorism, to name just a few of the unintended consequences of the first modernity. At the same time, precisely these risks caused by climate change, resource destruction and species extinction are limiting development opportunities and global scope for action much more than ever before.
