From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 7 February 2024

2024 will be the Voldemort of years, the year that must not be named. 

Managing the mischief of a divided America, wars in the Middle East and Ukraine as well as proliferating artificial intelligence is going to be hard going. So says Ian Bremmer, a globally respected political scientist and president of the political risk advisory firm, Eurasia Group.

Every year he releases the top ten global risks the world is facing and this year, he's spoiled for choice. 

He shares the dark list and where he sees sources of light and optimism.
