Where Is the World Heading in 2020?

When Al Jundi considered preparing a file on‭ ‬“The World in 2020‭,‬”‭ ‬or‭ ‬“Where Is the World Heading in 2020‭?‬”‭ ‬the important question was‭: ‬what topics can this file include‭? ‬What issues from this year are likely to impact the fiture‭?‬
Four topics were chosen—“World Economy 2020‭: ‬Prosperity or a New Setback‭?‬”‭ ‬“Post-Brexit‭: ‬Is the EU Heading for Disintegration‭?‬”‭ ‬“Populism‭: ‬Declining on the International Stage‭?‬”‭ ‬and‭ ‬“Post-Daesh Terrorism‭: ‬Retreat or New Waves‭?‬”
The choice of subjects was not haphazard‭; ‬rather‭, ‬it was based on several objective reasons and justifications‭. ‬First‭, ‬experts are talking of the possibility of a new global economic crisis in 2020‭ ‬and critical developments in the trade war between Washington and Beijing‭, ‬especially‭, ‬raise valid questions about the future‭. ‬Second‭, ‬2020‭ ‬is the year of Brexit‭; ‬it is a year that will‭ ‬test the European Union’s resilience without the United Kingdom‭, ‬and vice versa‭. ‬Third‭, ‬populism has witnessed some relative decline recently‭, ‬and 2020‭ ‬represents a pivotal year for the future of this tide—the US elections will take place just the outcome of Brexit is emerging‭. ‬Both events have‭, ‬one way or the other‭, ‬a substantial impact on the future of populism in the world‭. ‬Fourth‭, ‬2020‭ ‬represents a test of the state of world terrorism post-Daesh and in the wake of the death of the organisation’s leader‭, ‬Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi‭, ‬in 2019‭.‬
In light of the above‭, ‬the four topics chosen for this file are likely to affect the future of the world the most‭.‬
