Annotation: This 27-page report focuses on long-range emerging threats—those that may occur in approximately five or more years, or those that may occur during an unknown timeframe—as identified by various respondents at the Department of Defense, Department of State, Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The study developed four broad categories for 26 long-range emerging threats that officials identified: Adversaries’ Political and Military Advancements, Dual-Use Technologies, Weapons, and Events and Demographic Changes.
