015 – what a year! Ebola, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Islamic terrorism, countless refugee movements and new record temperature highs in our planetary ecosystem. At the same time, 2015 was also the year of the Paris climate treaty, the global Sustainable Development Goals ((SDGs) agreed in New York in summer) and the agreement with Iran to limit the nuclear conflict. The common denominator in all these examples is that, in a world of global, cross-border interdependencies, prosperity and security cannot be achieved at national level as long as insecurity prevails internationally. This simple causality has long been a topic of discussion, becoming more tangible every year.While the reasons are many, there are four main factors exacerbating the crisis.
