War and Peace (and in between)

Modern states rarely go to war with each other. Instead, they battle non-state groups such as al-Qaedaand ISIS. Such groups, however weak militarily, will continue to pose the threat of terrorism, feeding the narrative of a “clash of civilisations” between the West and Islam. Yet the greater risk for the future will come from cyberwarfare and potentially robotic weaponry. Meanwhile, the world’s politicians will need toguard against complacency: the danger is that the United Nations and other institutions created to foster peace after the second world war are already weakening.
