The International Futures Programme (IFP) is the OECD’s forward studies group that has provided strategic, long-term thinking and horizon scanning for the organisation since 1990. IFP events offer a platform where policy makers can freely confront their visions and concerns about the future, seek the views of others, and engage in a stimulating dialogue. In this way they gain a better understanding of the issues at stake. A variety of tools are used, ranging from horizon scanning and trend analysis to scenario construction, focus groups and policy analysis.
