Audit of Geopolitical Capability 2019
This Audit of Geopolitical Capability is a fascinating account of the capabilities of the major powers. It shows that the united Kingdom is well-positioned to confront many of the problems we may face.
The Audit of Geopolitical Capability 2019 assesses the potential capacity of twenty leading countries – drawn primarily from the Group of Twenty (G20) – to overcome the “tyranny of distance” and influence physical space, including counterparts located within that space.
The Audit therefore includes: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US), as well as Nigeria – Africa’s leading economy and most populous country.
Each country is assessed using a framework based on four components: “national base”, “national structure”, “national instruments” and “national resolve”. It includes 33 different indicators, 62 components and over 1240 potential data observations, combined into a composite score.
