The current version of the report evaluates the power of the countries listed taking into consideration 128 parameters, such as military and economic capabilities, diplomatic influence, resilience and resources at the disposal of the addressed States in the coming decades. Trends on regional power distribution are pointed out such as the possibility of an asymmetrical multipolarity, without the US and China being able to establish undisputed primacy and with the performance of average powers having accentuated relevance.
