[IT] La pandemia da COVID-19, scoppiata nei primi mesi del 2020, ha messo a dura prova i sistemi sanitari del Sud-Est asiatico e ha provocato una crisi economica che non si registrava da oltre vent’anni. Il numero di infezioni e di morti nella regione è stato nettamente più basso rispetto alle cifre registrate in Europa e negli Stati Uniti, grazie alla prontezza e all’esperienza mostrate da alcuni governi nel contenere il contagio attraverso una rigorosa applicazione della quarantena e di efficaci sistemi di tracciamento. Tuttavia, la diffusione della variante Delta del nuovo coronavirus è attualmente fonte di grande preoccupazione per alcuni Stati come la Thailandia, la Malaysia e l’Indonesia, i quali hanno reintrodotto nuove forme di isolamento e mantenuto in vigore le misure di distanziamento sociale per evitare che l’ennesima e allarmante ondata di infezioni si diffonda in maniera incontrollata.

Change is a notable feature of our time. Indeed, we expect that the world we live in will soon be significantly different, as will our lives and the lives of the communities we belong to. Because of technology, because of environmental degradation and, last but not least, because of the influence of rising powers on the world economy and the rules-based international order, the adaptation required at all levels is of unprecedented magnitude. The vastness of the task can be translated into effective decision-making by organizations of various sorts, from states to companies, only if all of them engage change, make sense of phenomena that spawn innovation, and anticipate the often-multidimensional impact of those phenomena. In-depth understanding of relevant global issues and knowledge-based foresight are key to steering change according to one’s worldview, mission and broader, long-term aims.

East Asia is the region to watch, not only because it contains the world’s most dynamic economies, but also because its combined rise and systemic innovation necessitate new reflections on governance at all levels, from local to global. Well aware as I am that ideas shape the world, I wish to express my gratitude to the distinguished scholars who have enthusiastically participated in this project and all those who have, since its inception, supported an exercise in foresight that may well prove decisive in the coming years.
