We live in a dangerous world, full of threats. This much we know — and so what? Of course, risks, conflict, terrorism, are very real, especially for those who are directly confronted with them. But geopolitics and the ways our politicians use them are also scattered with myths and exaggerations that can feed our anxieties and drive us to overreact. Alain Juillet is a risk specialist, and as a former member of the DGSE, France’s external intelligence agency. He knows how to differentiate between the real threat and threat as manipulation. An expert in security (notably economic security), he will talk to us about the fabric of our geopolitical fears and the methods we can use to face them.
