Authors: John Casti, IIASA; Leena Ilmola, IIASA; Petri Rouvinen, ETLA; Markku Wilenius, Turku University

This book serves as the final report of the Game Changers project lead by John Casti and coordinated by Leena Ilmola. The project was established towards the end of 2009 as a part of the Extreme Events in Human Society initiative at IIASA, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Laxenburg, Austria).

In this book we consider unlikely incidences with significant societal implications – extreme events (Xevents). A specific Xevent has a low probability. However, due to the range of possible Xevents and their transmission via global networks, an Xevent touches upon Finland quite frequently. We argue that Xevents should be among central concerns of decision makers in both public and private sectors. Our conclusions provide some suggestions for further considerations.
