|Abstract:||Directly applying the Mānoa School of Futures Studies’ four generic futures methodology, this dissertation investigates the driving forces, contemporary trends and emerging issues of Brussels anno 2015 within a nationalistic Flemish, Belgian and European Union landscape. Working with these images of the contemporary Global City of Brussels, futures scenarios for four futures of identity in 2060 are explored: Continued Growth via Social Fortress Flanders in Confederate Belgium; Collapse and New Beginnings in Arabic Fortress Brussels; Disciplined European Survival Regulated by Brussels, E.C. (Capital of the United States of Europe); and Transformation in Organic & Synthetic Identities in Sector 1 of Galactic Europe. This study concludes with a preferred future for Brussels utilizing the futures’ backcasting technique.|
