If 2015 was the year that the UK elected an all-Tory government and the opposing party drove further to the left, 2016 will see how this new polarized political landscape will pan out. The British people will also have their say on they position in the EU, which will determine relations with both allies and foes.
For many, 2015 symbolized a year of war, terrorism and crowds of humanity in flight. Will 2016 be a year when the world moves away from the abyss of war, or closer to it? With a new US President also set to take centre stage, 2016 will see change and uncertainty.
How will those debates play out? Who will be the focus of media scrutiny; what will shake the business world; and which cultural or social forces will shine the brightest to grab our attention?
Our expert panel will explore answers to these questions and more at Edelman’s annual Crystal Ball.
