Abstract
Human survival and well-being depend upon, interalia, our ability to anticipate and cope with future problems and threats. This, in turn, depends upon our ability to perceive, evaluate and control the effects of our actions, present and future; as well as on our capacity to imagine and create more desirable futures. Several methodologies and techniques are available as aids to decision-making. These are discussed. The paper analyzes the rationale for thinking about and studying the future within the context of transnational relations. It examines the necessity for doing this, while identifying some special characteristics of future problems as well as the implications flowing from such a process.
